Madhu On Priyanka's Scandalous Grammy's Dress

Priyanka invoked pretty divided opinions on her dress that she wore to the Grammy Awards with her husband, Nick Jonas

She was dressed in a white and silver Ralph and Russo gown, and the neckline went all the way down to her belly. 

This type of dress might not be new to the American audience, but Priyanka's Indian spectators found it a bit too revealing and scandalous, which prompted several headlines.

Indian designer Windell Rodricks even made a post on Instagram saying the dress's neckline was outrageous. 

He sarcastically added that the neckline's length was similar to the distance between LA and Cuba

But he was quick to delete the post and apologize after several fans called him out on his 'body-shaming comments.

In an interview, Madhu supported her daughter, Priyanka, saying that the dress controversy has made the actress mentally stronger than before. 

She shared that Priyanka had shown her the dress sample before the award show, and she loved it despite the dress's racy neckline. She also praised her daughter's ability to wear the dress beautifully. 

At last, she said that Priyanka was free to live her life at her own will as long as her actions do not hurt or harm other people, and she implored the audience to do the same. 

And, she revealed that she pays no attention to the haters or trolls as they write horrible things only to be acknowledged, and Madhu does not want to give the satisfaction that these people crave so dearly.
