Netflix’s latest reality show, Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives debuted on Friday with mixed reviews. The show stars Maheep Kapoor, Neelam Kothari Soni, Bhavana Panday and Seema Khan as the protagonists. During the show, it was revealed that Seema and Sohail are apparently not living under the same roof after 22 years of marriage. The season’s first episode shows Sohail entering Seema’s home after which she can be heard saying “So Sohail came over” suggesting that the two are probably not residing together. In another episode, Seema says, ”I don’t see enough of him. He stays with his dad, and he comes here and sleeps. It’s one of the most annoying things about Nirvaan”, further fuelling rumours of the couple being in an ‘open marriage’ or rather an ‘unconventional marriage’.

Without getting too gossipy, or airing dirty laundry, can someone give me context about Bhavana and Sohail’s marriage? Episode 1 has some ominous comments and allusion to stuff I clearly don’t have context for. #TheFabulousLivesOfBollywoodWives

Especially Maheep Kapoor in the first few minutes..don't know if its sarcasm or she's serious.

The revelation has now became a major point of discussion on Twitter, and netizens are curious to know why is the couple not staying together despite being married. Is there ‘trouble in paradise’ or just another modern version of marriage? Many Twitter users are wondering if it’s right to call her a Bollywood wife’ in case they are separated. One user asked, “Isn’t the show suppose to be About Bollywood wives how come Seema khan and Sohail Khan not living together? Isn’t that what husband and wife are supposed to do?”“Seema appears to be separated from Sohail? Kind of not a Bollywood wife?,” wrote a viewer. “Sohail Khan seems estranged with Seema.

However, neither of them had confirmed the reports. Talking about Sohail on the show, Seema said that she will ‘always love Sohail’. “We have the most amazing family. Sohail is the most amazing father. He has been amazing since my kids were born. I love him, I always will. We have a great relationship. It’s just that sometimes when you grow older, your relationships meanders and goes into different directions. I make no apologies about it because we are happy and my kids are happy,” she said. “Seema Khan is a fashion designer by profession and owns a label under her name in Bandra. She married Sohail in 1998 on the day of his directorial debut “Pyaar Kiya Toh Darna Kya” released.
