However, Madhur has accepted Karan’s apology as the ‘end’ of the title controversy.
Madhur Bhandarkar gave the correct answer
On Karan’s apology, Madhur Bhandarkar has also responded appropriately by sharing a long post on social media. Madhur wrote in his post, “Dear Karan, Thank you for answering, this is a really familiar industry and there is mutual trust and respect.” When we break the rules without hesitation, which we have made ourselves, it is not sensible to call ourselves brothers. Before giving the title of ‘Gutka’ in 2013, I did not think at all, for which you requested. That is why this time I need the same respect when I refused to give my name on the registered title. Even after being rejected by our conversations and trade associations, you use it, it hurts me a lot. Real relationships don’t go this way, but no matter, I accept your apology and end the dispute here. I also wish you all the best for your future projects.
