Indian Matchmaking revolves around Sima Taparia, a Mumbai-based matchmaker, who travels extensively around the world to help people find their true soulmates. She uses age-old methods such as consulting ‘kundalis’. She began to be fondly known as Sima Aunty, and the show became a hit during the coronavirus pandemic, despite attracting much controversy for endorsing traditions that are known to be regressive.
