Madhur Bhandarkar Accepts Karan Johar’s Apology Over Title Row
Madhur Bhandarkar accepts Karan Johar's apology over 'The Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives' title row
Bollywood’s ace filmmaker Karan Johar has issued an apology to filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar with an open letter. Bhandarkar had recently accused Karan Johar of tweaking his title ‘Bollywood Wives’ and using it as ‘Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives’ for his new Netflix series. He had also urged Karan to change the title of his new series.
Karan posted an open letter to Madhur saying, “Dear Madhur, Our relationship goes back a long way and we have both been a part of this close-knit industry for many, many years. Through all these years. I have been an ardent admirer of your work and I have always wished the best for you.’

The fashion director accepted the apology and wrote, “Dear @KaranJohar. Thank You for your response. This is indeed a close-knit industry and it operates on mutual trust and respect. When we blatantly disregard norms that we ourselves have established, then it makes very little sense calling ourselves a ‘fraternity’.”
