When Dimple Met Rishi Adaptation Headed To Netflix!

On July 16, it was announced that Sandhya Menon’s 2017 NYT Bestselling novel and debut When Dimple Met Rishi, would be getting an Indian adaptation for Netflix.

When Dimple Met Rishi will be adapted as a series for the streaming service and set to be released during 2020.

The adaptation will be titled Mismatched, which will star Prajakta Koli as Dimple Shah and Rohit Saraf as Rishi Patel.

According to Menon it will be “coming to Netflix India and available to watch globally this fall.”

While there is no full trailer yet, stills from the upcoming series can be seen in Netflix India’s ’17 Upcoming Netflix Originals’ video showcase. Additionally, Mismatched already has a page up on the Netflix site.

From Menon’s Instagram post, she shared her thoughts on the news and mentioned “One of the wonderfully weird things about having your work adapted is that you get to see the kernel of your idea grow into something new and different. I can’t wait to see how audiences resonate with Mismatched, which is Netflix India’s imagining of this world I love so dearly!”

No additional details about the series were announced. Update: *An official trailer was released in early November and the adaptation is set to release November 20!

Dimple Shah has it all figured out. With graduation behind her, she’s more than ready for a break from her family, from Mamma’s inexplicable obsession with her finding the “Ideal Indian Husband.” Ugh. Dimple knows they must respect her principles on some level, though. If they truly believed she needed a husband right now, they wouldn’t have paid for her to attend a summer program for aspiring web developers…right?

Rishi Patel is a hopeless romantic. So when his parents tell him that his future wife will be attending the same summer program as him—wherein he’ll have to woo her—he’s totally on board. Because as silly as it sounds to most people in his life, Rishi wants to be arranged, believes in the power of tradition, stability, and being a part of something much bigger than himself.

The Shahs and Patels didn’t mean to start turning the wheels on this “suggested arrangement” so early in their children’s lives, but when they noticed them both gravitate toward the same summer program, they figured, Why not?

Dimple and Rishi may think they have each other figured out. But when opposites clash, love works hard to prove itself in the most unexpected ways.

When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon is out now!
