The present will grace our screens on November 27, 2020.
Regardless of being cooped up at house, our summer season wasn’t in need of any drama and controversy. We’re hinting at Indian Matchmaking, a actuality collection on Netflix that highlighted the ugly reality behind organized marriages among the many upper-middle-class Indians (India or overseas). Now the OTT platform is again with one other actuality collection that we didn’t actually ask for however will watch.
Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives is all in regards to the fabulous however forgotten wives of Bollywood who, till now, have been busy launching their fabulous children within the trade. Twenty seconds into the trailer and the script reads, ”our lives could be fairly mundane” whereas pulling in at a shopping center in a Rolls Royce. Contemplating the premise of a collection, that is clearly an exaggerated model of the truth for the sake of leisure and TRP. Although it doesn’t discard the easy indisputable fact that they have been bored and somebody had a hackneyed money-minting script in thoughts.
The collection will take us behind the lives of 4 wives (and BFFs of just about 25 years): Seema Khan, Maheep Kapoor, Bhavana Pandey, and Neelam Kothari Soni. Seema Khan is the spouse of actor Sohail Khan (brother of Salman Khan) and a clothier. Maheep Kapoor (previously Maheep Sandhu) is the spouse of actor Sanjay Kapoor (brother of Anil Kapoor) and who has been attempting to launch their daughter Shanaya Kapoor in Bollywood. Bhavana Pandey is the spouse of Chunky Pandey and a dressing up designer who not-too-long-ago launched their daughter Ananya Pandey within the movie trade. And Neelam Kothari Soni is the spouse of Samir Soni who was an actress and now a jewelry designer.
The 4 girls have come collectively to placed on a present for the world to see, which is able to embrace cameos by Gauri and Shah Rukh Khan, amongst others.
Whereas the teaser seems to be fairly tempting, we nonetheless must resolve whether or not we’re prepared for an Indianised model of this type of actuality present.
