Priyanka Chopra recently found herself surrounded by many good and bad comments regarding her dress she wore at the Grammys 2020. The actor was appreciated for putting up a bold and experimental look while some criticised her for 'showing too much skin'.

One such comment that created a major rage among Priyanka’s fans was a comment by late designer Wendell Rodricks. He clarified the things but however there was no response from the actor. Unfortunately, the designer passed away on February 13, 2020, in Goa. Recently, Priyanka Chopra’s mother Madhu Chopra mourned the demise of Wendell Rodricks and said that her family holds no grudges against him.

In an interview with an entertainment portal, Madhu said that they hold no grudges against Wendell. She further said that disagreements happen and one shouldn’t keep it forever. Madhu Chopra mentioned that Wendell Rodricks was a nice man and Priyanka Chopra had worked with him. She added that she recalls the time when Wendell had subsequently issued a clarification.
