Recently, filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar took to social media to request KJo and Apoorva Mehta to change the title of the show. In his tweet, he called out KJo for misusing his title ‘Bollywood Wives’ and tweaking it to Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives for web series.
Madhur Bhandarkar’s tweet read, “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.”

For the uninitiated, Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives is based on the real lives of star wives like Sanjay Kapoor’s wife Maheep Kapoor, Chunky Panday’s wife and Ananya Panday mother Bhavna Panday, former actress Neelam Kothari and Sohail Khan’s wife Seema Khan. The trailer of the much-anticipated series released a few days back.
