Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives star Neelam Kothari opens up on trolls for reality show


Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives revolves around the glamorous lives of Neelam Kothari (wife of Sameer Soni), Maheep Kapoor (wife of Sanjay Kapoor), Seema Kiran Sajdeh (ex-wife of Sohail Khan) and Bhavana Pandey (wife of Chunky Panday). The show’s second season came out in September and was a huge success.

Neelam, who was known for her on-screen collaborations with Govinda and Chunky Panday in films like Love 86, Sindoor, Ilzaam Khudgarz, Aag Hi Aag, Paap Ki Duniya and Ghar Ka Chiraag, recently opened up about the trolling she had to face after the first season dropped two years ago.

Speaking at the India Today Conclave, Neelam spoke of the social media reaction when the first season came out in 2020, when she said: “When season 1 fell, I was blown away because my DM just exploded. When I used to make movies in the 80’s and 90’s there was no social media, no instagram you never really had a clue how popular you were when season 1 fell out i suddenly got messages from people from south africa, brazil, from all over the world . There’s just so much love pouring in.”

“But then I went to Twitter and YouTube and I remember seeing the comments. I then called Bhavana (Pandey) and said I’m going underground because there was a lot of trolling going on. We were in the pandemic. I thought that people hate the show. You never really get the true essence of something until you go out in public,” the actress added, revealing how she handled the online trolling for the show.
