Earlier, Madhur had claimed that Karan and Apurva Mehta along with him had requested him for the title of their show Bollywood Wives. Madhur refused, as his project was underway. Madhur wrote in a tweet- ‘Dear Karan Johar, you and Apoorva Mehta had demanded the title of’ Bollywood Wives’, for which I refused. My project is in progress. It is morally wrong that you have used it under the name ‘The Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives’. Please do not waste my project. You have requested me to change the title.
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.

However, there has been no reaction from Karan Johar or Apoorva Mehta on this matter. Talking about this show, it will tell about the lifestyle of Bollywood’s famous wives.
