Arti Lalwani from Indian Matchmaking is a Miami-based resident who works for a cybersecurity company. As seen on her Instagram (@artihlalwani), she loves spending time with her dog, Leo. Here's everything Reddit users have inquired about her, including if she is still together with Jamal.
Season 3 of Netflix's Indian Matchmaking has finally arrived on the streaming platform. The eight-episode reality TV series follows Sima Taparia, a matchmaker, as she helps singles who are ready to be married find their life partner.
Sima starts by getting their biographical information and asking them what they are looking for in a relationship before proposing prospective matches and setting up first dates. She is well known for her marriage counseling and for sticking with her customers all the way up until their lavish Indian wedding day.
Arti Lalwani, one of the cast members of Season 3, has received a lot of attention as she went against Sima, at one point. As a result, a lot of viewers, especially Reddit users, have been interested to know more about her. Well, we've got you covered.
Arti Lalwani From Indian Matchmaking: The Miami-Based Star Works for a Cybersecurity Company!
Based in Miami, Arti Lalwani (@artihlalwani) works in compliance for a cybersecurity company. According to her, she's ambitious, likes nice things, and enjoys hanging out with her dog. She made it very clear from the minute she first appeared on Indian Matchmaking that she is a powerful, independent, and ambitious woman who, technically, doesn't really need a partner.
But because it was her father's desire that she be blissfully married and he tragically passed away on July 23, 2021, she made the decision to start looking for her soul mate as she felt like the perfect moment for her as well.

Although Arti admitted that she was not yet ready to have a family, she did have a real desire for someone with whom she could share both her deepest, most authentic self and all of her life's experiences. Sima Taparia entered the picture at that point, but Arti quickly clarified that her future husband needed to have a solid family background and be at least as driven in every aspect of his life as she was.
Her additional requirements were that he be confident, kind, and born and raised in America with a comparable cultural background in order to better comprehend who she is. She wasn't too particular about this since she believed that an Indian is an Indian and didn't care if her jeweler father wanted a man from the Sindi community to be her love because of their shared heritage.
Avinash Shingwani of New York and Ashman Murti of California were, therefore, introduced to Arti as potential suitors, but the distance and the dry discussions made it quite evident that it wouldn't work out. It got so awful that she thought about quitting the experiment to concentrate only on her career at a cyber-security company, only to unexpectedly run across Jamal (@jamal_trainer) on a dating app.
In the Netflix original production, she admitted that Jamal's kickboxing picture was one of the things that really attracted her, and liked him back. She explained,
Literally, [Jamal] had this kickboxing picture and I used to kickbox, so that was one of the things that really attracted me to him… I liked him back. At the end of the day, he’s cute.
Arti didn't realize it would result in anything more, but her primary motivation for talking to him at first was the fact that she had been seeking for a coach to return to the sport for some time. The two really met that night at a nearby Costco, where the former helped him shop for goods while the latter purchased pizza- her ideal date as a Costco fanatic.
Arti and Jamal got engaged at the end of the show.

After knowing that Jamal was a Pakistani, Sima allowed her "aunty" to attempt to convince Arti not to date a Muslim man, but Arti didn't listen to her and even got a diamond ring from Jamal in the finale when he proposed to her.
We can tell from Arti and Jamal's social media accounts that they are still happily engaged because she frequently appears in tagged images with her ring on. They have also been visible on each other's Instagram feeds since the beginning of 2022, and in March, they joined Shital Patel and Niraj Mehta in celebrating the Holi holiday.
