The breakout star of Netflix’s hit series Indian Matchmaking, Aparna Shewakramani became an overnight ambassador for women demanding to be heard—in their love lives, workplaces, and in every space they occupy. Aparna practices law full time and holds a JD from Vanderbilt Law and a BA from Rice University. She is ambitious and career driven, while remaining relatable, genuine, and unapologetically herself both on- and off-screen. Armed with her signature blend of femininity and bluntness, Aparna is certainly not one to fit into the mold—which is exactly why the world fell in love with her! She is an avid traveler (over 44 countries and counting) and the co-founder and owner of the luxury travel company My Golden Balloon.
