Karan Johar discusses the idea behind the Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives show

During an interview with Sucharita, the filmmaker expressed his surprise upon overhearing the women discussing their attire for a funeral. This prompted him to believe that their dynamic energy and camaraderie should be showcased in a show.

He recalled that it all started with him and the four women on their way to a funeral. During the flight, they were discussing their choice of salwar kameez. "Maheep Kapoor was too blingy and she was trying to justify; the other was too sober. I was like, ‘Someone has passed away, we are going to their funeral, and you are discussing your outfits?! Does anyone care!’," he added. At that moment, he felt compelled to create a show featuring these four women.
