Rent A Boyfriend- Sounds strange? Well, this is a new app launched in Mumbai on August 15 by a socially conscious 29-year-old Kushal Prakash who claims to free Indian youth from depression using this application. The app is Rent a Boy | friend aka RABF, because the line symbolizes the app’s platonic policy and that one can deal with their depression and loneliness by renting a boy or a friend.
Not only will Rent A Boyfriend allow people to choose from a roster of 65 gentlemen between the ages of 20 and 25, though DNA also reports that there are a few 55-year-olds. The app promises men who not only rank as “A-grade models”, according to Prakash, but are also armed with the ability to provide emotional counseling to the people renting their services. The mastermind of the app claims that one can even call and talk to professionals and get help to escape their depression.
Kushal Prakash came up with the idea of this app after he himself faced depression. Giving details about men in display on RABF website, Prakash said, “You can rent a celebrity for Rs 3,000, or a model for up to Rs 2,000, or an aam aadmi (commoner) for just Rs 300-400 per hour. The website works strictly on a commission basis, giving 70 percent of the earning to the boyfriends.”

If you are a fan of MTV Splitsvilla then you must be familiar with Akash Choudhary. Well, he is also on the list of boyfriends one can rent through the application.
The initiative doesn’t include females because saying ‘Rent A Girl’ won’t sound good in India and can have controversial notations.
