NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: While busy climbing atop the career ladder, Shital Patel never realized how time flew by, until one fine day it dawned upon her that she was closer to her 40s than 20s. This quickly stirred a panic within her, as he began worrying about missing out on having her own kids, and a family. So, without wasting any further time, Shital turned to 'Indian Matchmaker' fame matchmaker Sima Taparia for help.

During their first meeting, Shital made it very clear to Sima that she wasn't the one to settle down or compromise when it came to what she was looking for in her life partner. Craving for a partnership of equals, Shital had a long list of non-negotiable traits that her partner should possess, such as a good head of hair, tattoos, Gujrati man, ambition, etc. Though Sima aunty tried her best to get Shital to lower her expectations a little, Shital was adamant about getting what she wanted. So, Sima aunty matched her with Viral Kothari and Aparna Shewakramani’s cousin Avinash Shingwani. Viral's excessive talking and the lack of spark and physical attraction with Avinash forced Shital to reject both the men.
