While talking about Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives, Nainika asks Rajyasree what she would do if she was a Bollywood wife:

Rajyasree: See, when I was young, I had hair like you. So, I’d get this hair again. Like suddenly I'd have a shock of hair. I’d go to Dubai and I'd come back with a shock of hair.

Nainika: Okay, fair. But that’s a one-time investment?

Rajyasree: Then I’d go to France and I’d come back like 20 shades fairer. ‘What happened?’ I'd say, ‘Oh, there’s no sun out there, I don't know.’

Nainika: (laughs)

Rajyasree: Then I’d go somewhere else, my figure would be – like, I don’t know – like when I was 23. ‘How did...?’ No, I ate healthy. I just became slim again.

Rajyasree and Nainika burst out laughing.

This and a whole lot of stuff awful and awesome as Rajyasree Sen and Nainika Rathore review season two of web series Delhi Crime and Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives; the drama surrounding the film Don’t Worry Darling; and the Venice press screening of the film The Whale.
