Madhur Bhandarkar recently shared that the title of the upcoming reality TV series The fabulous life of Bollywood brides is similar to the name of his project. He asked creators Karan Johar and Apurva Mehta to change the name of their Netflix show.
The director wrote that Johar and Mehta asked him to use the title Bollywood brides for a web show. After Bhandarkar refused, they continued their project with a modified title, The fabulous life of Bollywood brides.
“Please don’t taint my project. I humbly ask you to change the title,” Bhandarkar wrote in the tweet, requesting a title change.
Here is the post
expensive @karanjohar U & @ apoorvamehta18 asked me for the title #BollywoodWives for the web, which I refused, because my project is in progress. It is morally and ethically wrong to change it #TheFabulousLivesofBollywoodWives. Please do not taint my project. I humbly ask you to change the title.
