Bollywood ace filmmaker Karan Johar's upcoming series Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives has landed in troubles after Madhur Bhandarkar has alleged that Karan has used his title for this movie. Since then the controversy is boiling but finally ended in a good note with the apology. Madhur has accepted the apology of Karan and also doled out that, "This is not how relationships work".
Well, Madhur Bhandarkar gave his reply to Karan Johar's apology note and left a long note on his Twitter page…
This post reads,
"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". I didn't hesitate moment in the past before granting the title 'Gutka' in 2013 that you had requested from me, and hence I would have expected the same courtesy in written when I declined due to the use of a title I had you duly registered, and which I did not intend to part with. The fact that you went ahead and used the title anyway despite our conversation and despite it also having been rejected by the trade associations, is what had upset me deeply. This is not how I believe real relationships work.
But let's move forward. I accept your apology and would like to leave things here. I do wish you well in your future endeavours.
Well, a few hours ago, Karan Johar has put an full stop to this issue by jotting down an apology note to Madhur for using his title for his upcoming movie… He took to his Twitter page and dropped along apology note… Have a look!
This post reads, "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.
I know you have been upset with us. I humbly apologise for any grievance that has been caused to you during the course of the last few weeks. However, I would want to clarify that we have chosen this new and different title "The Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives" keeping in mind the non-fiction format of our reality based franchise series. As our title was distinct, I did not foresee to upsetting you as it has and for that I duly apologise.
We assure you that the format, nature, audience and the title of our series are different and would not in any manned dent or encumber the exploration of your work."
I hope we can move away and onward from thus and continue to make exceptionally good content for audiences. I wish you the very best for all your endeavours and look forward to watching your work.
