The trailer of Dharmatic Entertainment's Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives recently released on Netflix's YouTube channel and already there was a mixed response to it.
And now the production house and Karan Johar himself find themselves in legal trouble. Now, according to a report, rather shockingly, filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar has filed a complaint against Karan Johar for misusing his title ‘Bollywood Wives’.
According to a report in Republic, the Fashion director filed a complaint in Indian Motion Pictures Producers' Association (IMPPA) against Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. Bhandarkar sent a letter to IMPPA via email, to which they responded and mentioned that they have not registered the title in the favour of Dharma Productions. The IMPPA also sent a letter to Dharma Productions to submit their reply on the issue and change the title with immediate effect. The email letter is also marked to Netflix. In their reply to Bhandarkar, IMPPA approved the title ‘Bollywood Wives’ and informed that Dharma Productions are using the similar title ‘illegally and without any authorisation’.
On Twitter, Madhur Bhandarkar tweeted, “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.”-
We wonder what will Johar's response to this be.
