When fans heard about Netflix's newest show, 'Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives', they were very excited to get a sneak peek into the glamorous lives of their favorite Bollywood stars and their personal lives. However, the enthusiasm quickly faded away after watching the first season of the show. Several fans were disappointed to discover that the show didn't boast of any bigwigs amongst its cast members. The plotline failed to impress viewers as well.

One of the biggest bones of contention for fans was the cast members of the show. The show revolves around four star wives – Maheep Kapoor (wife of Sanjay Kapoor), Neelam Kothari Soni (wife of Samir Soni), Seema Khan (wife of Sohail Khan) and Bhavana Pandey (wife of Chunky Panday). Unfortunately, none of the husbands of these wives are bigwigs in the Bollywood film industry, and this has left fans feeling a bit disappointed. 

Several fans took to their social media to express that they want to watch the lives of "real Bollywood wives" on the show rather than the existing cast members. Although Gauri Khan, wife of Shahrukh Khan was featured extensively in the trailers of the show, she only had a brief cameo in the last episode, which left fans feeling even more dejected.

One fan commented, "Gauri khan is the only wife in this whose husband is prominent and well known even today. And she has a cameo. Pretty much sums up everything about this show." Another fan wrote, "They are not even "Bollywood wifes. Only Bollywood "real" wife I saw was gauri Khan Real Bollywood wifes are Shilpa Shetty, Kiran Rao, twinkle Khanna, Kareena Kapoor, Mira rajput, kajol, karrena, rani Mukherjee, Ashwariya rai, Deepika padukone.....this show will be more flop than their husband carrer I am quite interested in gauri episode though." "We Want To Watch Fabulous Lives Of Gauri Khan, Twinkle Khanna, Kareena Kapoor, Rani Mukherjee, Aishwarya Rai, Kajol, Kiran Rao, Madhuri Dixit, Karishma Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, & Meera Rajput Kapoor, & Not The Lives Of Above Flop Actor's Wives," seconded a fan. 

Many fans also felt that the show's title was misleading, and came up with alternative titles suggestions for the show. A fan shared, "It should rather have been titled as "miserable lives of flop actor's wives". Another fan suggested, "The title should be "The pretentious lives of ex-Bollywood (leeching off of the reflected glory of SRK and pretending to be relevant) wannabes". "It should have been fabulous lives of flop, jobless actors wives. no wonder they made srk do a cameo towards the end  #TheFabulousLivesOfBollywoodWives," tweeted a fan.


'Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives' is available for streaming on Netflix.
