While talking about Indian Matchmaking, Rajyasree lists her criteria for the perfect partner:

Rajyasree: You can set me up...I’m very open to suggestions.

Nainika: I’ll be on the lookout for people who’d be nice to...

Rajyasree: Subscribers can write in also if they want.

Nainika: Please send in your biodatas. I would love to evaluate them and then set up a meeting between you and Rajyasree.

Rajyasree: You can send your bank statements also because we don’t want surprises later.

Nainika bursts out laughing.

This and a whole lot of stuff awful and awesome as Rajyasree Sen and Nainika Rathore review Jordan Peele’s Nope; web series Indian Matchmaking Season 2 and The Staircase; Hrithik Roshan's Zomato ad row; and the trailer of Season 2 of Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives.
