The APAHM Project 2023 Days 7-11: Master of None
Series: Master of None
Created By: Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang
Where to Watch: Netflix
Today we are joined by a familiar face! A lot of things have changed since Nirali Patel Zalawadia joined us in 2021 to talk about Bride and Prejudice (including her last name!) Despite today's series title, Nirali has earned two Master degrees, her MBA and her Master of Health Administration. She currently works as Meritan as a Strategic Feasibility Manager. We love a boss lady! Nirali also got married to her own Dev in 2022, where I was honored to stand beside her as a bridesmaid. In her spare time, Nirali enjoys traveling, reading a good book, and rock climbing and trying out new restaurants with yours truly :)
Nirali has chosen Master of None from comedian/actor Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang (2020's APAHM Project Tiger Tail). I chose to include this title on this year's Project because I feel we haven't seen the South Asian male perspective in previous APAHM Project lineups. Master of None addresses some heavy topics such as racism, immigration, feminism, tokenism, and more in a comedic way. The show definitely opens the narrative to talk about these points further which made for a great interview!
Small Business Shout Out!
Nirali would like to give a shout-out to her sister-in-law, Jinal, and Jinal's sister-in-law, Vrushali, who are the co-owners of Chic Aesthetics! Chich Aesthetics specializes in South Asian couture clothing. Give them a follow and consider them for the next time you need a beautiful Desi outfit!
