Madhur Bhandarkar has requested Karan Johar and film producer Apoorva Mehta to change the name of their upcoming web show ‘Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives’.

He wrote, ‘Dear @karanjohar U & @apoorvamehta18 had asked me 4 the title #BollywoodWives for web, which I refused,as my project is underway. It is Morally & ethically wrong u to tweak it to #TheFabulousLivesofBollywoodWives. Pls do not dent my project. I humbly request u to change the title.’ The title is with Madhur from the past four years for a film and a web show.
