Why A Second Season of ‘Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives’ might be a fail

Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives is a semi-reality show that aired in November 2020 on Netflix. It was produced by Karan Johar under Dharmatic (the digital content company by Dharma Productions). It stars Maheep Kapoor, Bhavana Pandey, Seema Khan and actress Neelam Kothari Soni.

While the first season of the show did very well and attracted many viewers, it seems difficult to have the same response for Season 2. This is because the content of the show seems exhausted already. Watching all through Season 1 itself had become rather monotonous with no other content except the discussions around fashion labels or Hollywood gossip; extravagant expenditure on food, couture and jewellery; repetitive Bollywood celebrities’ faces in short instances throughout the show; and the age-old talk about the struggles of living high profile, rich, celebrity lives which are supposed to overshadow all of their privileges. It all seems “done before”.

From the looks of it, it was the curiosity surrounding how these ‘glamorous’ celebrities and their family members live their lives or spend their money which attracted an audience for the show in the first place. But after the first season, since that curiosity factor isn’t there, it seems like a very challenging task to keep the audience interested in watching Season 2. And post this success, a desperate attempt to keep the audiences interested may even involve a lot of drama creation and lack of authenticity.

Hence, I derive that a Season 2 for #FabulousLivesofBollywoodWives might fail. But let’s wait and see what happens. Until then, comment your thoughts below!
