Unless you have been living under a rock, you must have heard about a brand new reality series on Netflix that is creating all the buzz on social media.

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’.
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?
Here is how Twitter reacted:
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?”
In the past too, on multiple occasions, it was reported that their marriage has hit a rough patch, but nothing conclusive came out of it. In 2017, there were strong reports of Seema and Sohail’s separation after a big tiff, but neither of them confirmed the reports.
Commenting on their current unconventional marriage, Seema said during the show, ”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. Sohail and I are not a conventional marriage but we are a family. We are a unit. For us, him and me and our children matter at the end of the day.”
