Who is Vyasar Ganesan? Follow the Indian Matchmaking star on Twitter!

Since Indian Matchmaking was released on Wednesday, July 15th, it has become one of Netflix’s most talked-about series.

The dating show follows Sima Taparia, one of Mumbai’s top matchmakers, as she attempts to pair off millennial singletons from around the world. Although it has now been confirmed that Sima found little successful making matches on the Netflix show, viewers still fell head over heels for the cast.

Vyasar Ganesan – along with Nadia Jagessar, who now has her own online fan club – is undoubtedly the heart and soul of Indian Matchmaking. Throughout the series Sima Taparia encountered difficult clientele, but Vyasar was a total sweetheart.

Vyasar on Indian Matchmaking

In Indian Matchmaking, we see Vyasar initially get set up with Manisha Dasha, who is seven years older than him. While their date was ok, both parties agreed that they were lacking chemistry. Both came to the conclusion that the relationship did not have legs and went their separate ways.

The next match for Vyasar was Rashi, a San Francisco-based veterinarian. When Rashi and Vyasar were together, viewers were hopeful that he’d found the one. Sima’s face reader even predicted that these two were destined to be, which signalled that this match might work out.

But sadly, things have not worked out for Rashi and Vyasar romantically. As Vyasar told the LA Times: “Matchmaking is really tough. It’s no one’s fault, both people I was matched with were truly wonderful, inspiring individuals who I’m proud to call friends.”
