Madhur Bhandarkar accepts Karan Johar’s apology with a caveat: ‘This is not how relationships work’


Madhur Bhandarkar has ‘accepted’ Karan Johar’s apology over tweaking and using a show title already registered by the Fashion filmmaker. While Madhur had registered the title ‘Bollywood Wives’, the name of Karan’s production house, Dharma Productions’ new Netflix show is The Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives. Madhur has said that he was left deeply upset when Karan used the title despite him having made it clear that he would not part with it.

Madhur shared a note in response to Karan’s open letter on Twitter on Thursday. He 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’.”
