After returning to the showbiz radar and drawing a stupendous response with Netflix's “Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives”, Neelam Kothari Soni is now considering a full-fledged comeback in Bollywood.

Bollywood's favourite girl-next-door of late 80s and early 90s, Neelam has been away from an active career in films and the entertainment world for a long time.

She has worked in a plethora of projects including superhits such as "Hatya", "Love 86", "Sindoor" an "Khudgarz" to name a few.

Recently, Neelam was spotted with her adopted daughter Ahana in Bandra. Check out the pictures below.

For those unversed, Neelam was earlier married to Rishi Sethia, son of a UK-based businessman. However, they got divorced soon after. She then married actor Samir Soni in 2011. In 2013, they adopted a baby girl named Ahana.

Neelam recently appeared on the dance reality show “Super Dancer 4” alongside Govinda. After getting a taste of her fans’ love, the actress wants to do more work.

She said, "At the time when I was at the peak of my career in films, we never had social media to give us a direct sense of our popularity, the excitement among fans and their appreciation. But being on a Netflix show first and then this appearance on a reality show have collectively made me realize how many fans I still have. People remember my work so fondly. I have been inundated with the most encouraging response through comments and direct messages on social media, and it almost feels like I've made a comeback! I have to say that this adulation and warmth really tempts and motivates me to be more active in the industry going forward."

The multi-faceted actor left films to immerse herself in balancing her personal and a different professional life. So, while she devotes most of her time to taking care of her family, Neelam also continues to nurture her talent as a jewelry designer, carrying forward a legacy of three generations of her family business.

As she gears up for Season 2 of “Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives”, Neelam is also seriously considering her acting comeback. While she has kept her lips sealed on any details, it is acceptable to say that she already has some projects in the pipeline and she will soon zero in on something interesting.
