Amazon Mini TV series Kaali Peeli Tales, which was released on August 20, had quite a few interesting themes to discuss. While the series was largely about love in Kaali Peeli, there was also a segment about co-parenting after divorce, which could have been inspired by Bollywood celebs co-parenting their kids after their divorce.

The segment in Kaali Peeli Tales, called Harra Bharra, featured Soni Razdan and Vinay Pathak in the lead roles. The two had a lot of love between them, most of it coming from co-parenting their daughter Suchi, played by Kavya Thapar.

In real life, Hrithik Roshan and Sussanne Khan spend enough time with one another even after divorce, because they co-parent their kids Hrehaan and Hridhaan Roshan. Sussanne also moved back in with the Roshan family during COVID-19 so that she wouldn't have to put herself, the children or any of the family members at the risk of travelling amid the pandemic.

Similarly, Vinay's character travelled from Delhi to be a part of his (on-screen) daughter Suchi's pre-wedding festivities, despite his differences with 'Neena' Soni Razdan. The two were arguing over the age-old discussion - a family member.

Much like Hrithik Roshan, Aamir Khan also recently separated from his wife of 16 years, Kiran Rao. The two had also recently stated that they would be co-parenting their kid, Azad Rao Khan.

Inspired or not, Harra Bharra, even though not perfect, had some adorable moments. The moment in a taxi where the divorced parents and their child express their love for one another, while the third person (ex-husband's current wife) calls him, is one of the most complex situations handled by director Adeeb Rais with care.

Kaali Peeli Tales featured five other subjects - infidelity, gay love, falling out of love and in love with oneself, finding love in chaos and the last, rediscovering what life has to offer.
