Chopra, who joined the social connection app as an investor and advisor, said she hoped it would change the way dating is perceived in India. “Dating is not something that happens often in India; it’s not the norm, you don’t date multiple people — you date one person, you like them, you date them for a while, and then you get into a relationship. That is why Bumble is going into India.”
The women-oriented application also doubles up as a platform to make friends and enhance business, an aspect, Chopra insisted, could be exploited by those who are in relationships.
