New Delhi: ‘The Fabulous Lives Of Bollywood Wives’ Season 2 created quite some headlines upon release. Now, one of its lead stars Neelam Kothari has opened up about the reality web show saying that it is not scripted. She said that her co-stars and friends who feature as themselves decided to talk about the real issues in the show and all of it is genuine. The ‘Fabulous Lives..’ Season 2 returned on Netflix in September.
It stars Neelam Kothari, actor and wife of Samir Soni, Maheep Kapoor, wife of Sanjay Kapoor, Bhavana, wife of Chunky Panday and Seema, ex-wife of actor-filmmaker Sohail Khan. The show talks about the personal and professional lives of the four wives as they navigate friendships among other things.
Talking at the India Today Conclave recently, Neelam said ‘The Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives’ was not scripted at all. “It’s not scripted. They tell us we’ll be shooting at such and such venues but what we discuss is up to us. We decide to fight and cry, it depends on us,” she said.
Neelam also added that all four of the ‘wives’ had agreed on not touching a few topics which were personal for all of them. She said, “I’ve known the three for almost 25 years. When we are together, we have a blast. Before the show started, we decided there are certain topics which are off-limits. Everything is genuine. Whenever we are having fun or a blast, it is all real. People are also enjoying this kind of content because there has been nothing like this before in India.”
Neelam has worked in films like Ilzaam (1986), Khudgarz (1987), Hatya (1988), Farz Ki Jung (1989), Taaqatwar (1989) and Do Qaidi (1989) and has also worked with Chunky, Bhavana’s husband in a number of films. She was last seen in the blockbuster and cult film ‘Hum Saath-Saath Hain’ in 1999.
