The infamous matchmaker said Chopra and Jonas have married but aren't a "good match" because the singer looks small and petite while the actor looks "older" — whatever that means.

Known for her problematic takes on the matchmaking business, Sima Taparia of Indian Matchmaking reopened everyone’s eyes to the world of matchmaking when her show debuted its second season on Netflix this Wednesday. While several original cast members returned to the show, such as Pradhyuman Maloo, Aparna Shewakramani and Nadia Jagessar, the highlight of the season was the matchmaker rejecting Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ relationship.

In the second episode of the latest season, Taparia asks Jagessar about how her relation with Shekhar, the bachelor she set her up with, is going. She told the matchmaker that despite giving multiple hints, she doesn’t feel he has the same feelings for her as she does for him. But Taparia knew the truth that Jagessar had flirted with another single at a party and she had not told Shekhar about it. The person whom she flirted with, Vishal, was seven years younger than her.

To prove that Jagessar’s relationship could work, Taparia jokingly gave example of Chopra and Jonas who have an 11-year age gap. “But I don’t feel it’s a good match, sorry to tell them,” Sima said. She added, “Just they have married, but it’s not a good match. He looks so small and petite in front of her, and she looks elder.” Jagessar let out a shocked laugh in response to what the matchmaking aunty said on the show.

Chopra and Jonas tied the knot in 2018 in a grand Indian wedding after a whirlwind romance. Earlier this year the couple welcomed their first child via surrogate, a baby girl whom they named Malti Marie Chopra Jonas. Clearly, they’re doing just fine, regardless of what a random matchmaker says.
