Netflix's latest show 'Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives' promised to give us a peek into the glamorous lives of Bollywood star wives and all the drama that goes on behind closed doors. Fans were excited to get a glimpse into the intriguing lives of Bollywood stars and their families. It's no secret that these stars love to live an extravagant and flamboyant life, and the showrunners wasted no time in displaying it.

The pilot episode opened with Maheep Kapoor feeling anxious about her family's upcoming trip to Paris. She then explains in her green room interview that her daughter, Shanaya Kapoor was invited to Paris for attending Le Bal, a ball for introducing debutantes to the world. She then proudly declares that Shanaya was the only Indian girl to be invited to the ball that year. 

While she is proud of her daughter's invite, she's stressed about her husband, Sanjay Kapoor. She fears that he might end up breaking into Bollywood dance moves or embarrass the family with his unapologetic behavior. After some stern warning to Sanjay to be on his best behavior, and reminding Shanaya to pack everything, the Kapoors finally leave for Paris.

Once they arrive at the venue for the ball dance, they begin their rehearsals for the party. On the D-day, Sanjay turns up in a sharp suit and pairs them with trainers, while Maheep and Shanaya put on their finest evening outfits. Much to Maheep's relief, Sanjay didn't break into any Bollywood dance moves, and the event went without any bumps – although Sanjay did refuse to drink champagne saying he never drinks it, and Maheep kept repeating that Shanaya was the only Indian girl at the party that year.

After watching the Kapoors' behavior at the party, fans began mocking Le Bal for inviting them. A fan tweeted, "It says a lot about Le Bal when their guests from Bollywood were Ananya and Shanaya in the last 2 years #FabulousLivesofBollywoodWives." Another fan wrote, "Did these people pay to get invited to Le Bal? How are they even breathing the same air as Reese Witherspoon! #FabulousLives #FabulousLivesofBollywoodWives." 



 



 

Fans were also amused to see the Bollywood's fixation with Le Bal. A fan commented, "The first two episodes of #bollywoodwives can be summed up as "Bollywood cabal glorifies le Bal." Another fan shared, "On the second episode of #TheFabulousLivesOfBollywoodWives & why were these people invited to Le Bal, again? As Bollywood obsessed as I used to be, I see myself cringing at these people SO MUCH now. The only thing I’m looking forward to is seeing bae @iamsrk in the last episode." "It's supposed to be a “classy” event but the dude is chewing a f**ng gum during the “Le Bal” as Shanaya’s cavalier great election Ophelie Renouard #bollywoodwives #bollywoodwivesnetflix," joked a fan.
