Neelam Kothari Soni joined Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives for her close friend Karan Johar. She appreciates being a member of the quartet now that the second season of the Netflix reality series has recently been made available online.

Speaking about the same, the actor told Mid Day that Karan gave her a cameo in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998), which brought her back. She had ceased performing by that point. The filmmaker persuaded her to do it, however, by describing how lovely it would be. They had a great time filming this show. They occasionally lost sight of the cameras altogether.

With the sequel to Zoya Akhtar's Made in Heaven, Kothari is now preparing for her acting comeback. Zoya had seen Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives' inaugural season. Her episode had not yet been cast, even though Made in Heaven production had begun.

The actor claims that she lucked out, and it's been a pleasure working with the director. She has watched Zoya, a distant relative, mature. Kothari calls her one of the best directors because she and her art are fantastic.

Neelam is also a jewellery designer along with an actor. She made her acting debut in the 1984 film Jawaani, paired with newcomer Karan Shah. Following that, Neelam appeared in films with Govinda in which she co-starred, including Love 86 (1986), Ilzaam (1986), Sindoor (1986), Khudgarz (1987), Hatya (1988), Farz Ki Jung (1989), Taaqatwar (1989), and Do Qaidi (1989). In the movies Aag Hi Aag (1987), Paap Ki Duniya (1988), Khatron Ke Khiladi (1988), Billoo Badshah (1989), Ghar Ka Chiraag (1989), and Mitti Aur Sona (1989), she co-starred with Chunkey Pandey.

In the Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives, Kothari is seen alongside Maheep Kapoor, Bhavana Pandey, and Seema Kiran Sajdeh. The second season dropped this month after nearly two years of waiting.
