Are Viral Joshi and Aashay Shah from Indian Matchmaking still together? We explain the latest update on the couple. 

Indian Matchmaking is a reality TV dating show created and produced by Smriti Mundhra.

The show has its very own matchmaker, Sima Taparia — the kind that puts people together, not actually a person that makes matches — and has proved very popular, reaching a third season.

Shows of this nature can really depend on the contestants, and viewers have to be invested in the characters for the show to work.

Luckily for Indian Matchmaking, the pairing of Viral Joshi and Aashay Shah definitely really resonated with the audience.

The duo was introduced to us back in Season 2, and the fans have been very interested in the couple, so that leads us to present this perfectly put-together article that answers the question: Are Viral Joshi and Aashay Shah from Indian Matchmaking still together?

Who are Viral Joshi and Aashay Shah?

Viral hails from Wilmington North Carolina and is an ambitious and independent woman.

Viral is the only child in a Gujarati family, and was very well educated, becoming fond of travelling and succeeding as a medical professional. Her career would lead her to working in the endocrinology department at Wilmington Hospital.

At the time of filming, Viral was thirty years old, and had expressed on the show that she was looking for a significant other and did not just want to be someone’s “other half”.

Viral has a cat named Xena.

Aashay Shah is also in the medical industry and is an optometrist in New York.

Aashay grew up in India and was also ambitious, leaning into his education and although a little less outgoing than Viral, his confidence and personable nature made him a great potential partner for Viral.

During the rock climbing date, Aashay was incredibly patient with Viral, and this initial date seems to have been one of the defining moments in their relationship.

When asked about Viral, Aashay would say that he has not felt such a connection in a very long period of time. He went on to explain that Viral was the first girl he was taking to a wedding as his plus one.

The couple hasn’t publicly stated anything recently as it seems that they prefer to keep a lower profile, but we did find a couple of hints on social media that present an optimistic outcome.

The couple has travelled to a few similar places over the last year, but they also attended the premiere of Netflix’s The Romantics together at The Paris Theatre in New York City, New York, in February 2023. Aashay has posted on his Instagram page about this event.
