Open Letter to women who turn down nice guys
Written on behalf of the ‘nice guys’ who do everything in their power to impress their girlfriends and keep them happy, this open letter was an attempt to spread awareness about how women should stop chasing bad boys. It describes how the bad boys break her heart and then she becomes hard hearted, rejecting the amorous and sincere efforts of nice guys.
It also points out that if a woman does not want to settle down eventually then getting into a serious relationship with a nice guy is wrong. Well, who will settle with whom is their own decision and a ‘nice guy’ should not be categorizing women.

AIB Roast makers had also declared it to be an adult show. Twinkle has aptly pointed out problems like gang rapes, reduced health care spending and lack of educational facilities for children that deserves our attention more than a comedy show.
