The Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives, that aired on OTT platform Netflix, saw a huge success and there are talks about a season 2 as well.
The producer of the show, Karan Johar was well acquainted with the 4 wives namely Seema Khan, Maheep Kapoor, Bhavana Pandey and Neelam Kothari and saw through their madness and thought that the 4 commanded a show of their own.
During a Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives reunion on Clubhouse, moderated by Janice Sequeira, the four women were asked about any cringe moments that they experience during the filming of the series. Seema said, “Honestly, I didn’t want to look. To be honest with you, I haven’t really looked at myself on TV because everything was cringe. I was like, ‘Why am I doing this?’” She added that the ‘biggest problem, not cringe’ was when the women wore heels to the pool while on their Doha vacation. “I was like, ‘This is really moronic, guys’, but I guess it works,” she said.
Maheep Kapoor, wife of Sanjay Kapoor too shared some of her cringe moments and was shocked at the way she looked on the show, be it her side profile, her backside or any other angel, she couldn’t accept that this was the way she actually looked. Maheep mentioned that they thought that the show would fall flat, but everything turned out much better than they expected and the feedback was overwhelming.
Seema exclaimed with horror about her gym look and made it very clear that this wasn’t the way she dressed to go to the gym. All the wives seemed to have some cringe moments about their onscreen debut, but with the response they received for the show, all was forgiven.
