“And the new…Miss Universe is…India!” When host Steve Harvey uttered these words at the 70th edition of the Miss Universe pageant, every Indian got goosebumps. Harnaaz Sandhu took the crown of the winner on 13 December and India won the title after 21 years. It is an iconic victory and one we will not forget for a very long time. Several Bollywood celebs including Lara Dutta and Priyanka Chopra have congratulated model Harnaaz Sandhu and her words are making us proud.
Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra, who won Miss World in the year 2000, is busy these days in the promotion of her Hollywood film ‘The Matrix Resurrection’. During this, she is garnering accolades by making tremendous revelations about her life to the film. Meanwhile, when Priyanka was asked about Harnaaz Sandhu winning the Miss Universe crown, the actress said that she was ‘excited’ to see Harnaaz Sandhu wearing the Miss Universe crown.
Talking to Fox5 about Harnaaz’s win, Priyanka said, “I was very excited about it. Lara Dutta last won India in Miss Universe 2000. This was the year I won Miss World as well. Harnaaz has brought this crown home (India) after 21 years and she is 21 years old, so she was born the year I won Miss World.”
Guessing about Harnaaz’s age, Priyanka laughs and she adds, “I am very excited for him and I hope this is the beginning of an incredible journey. She is very smart and beautiful, obviously, and to be honest, I am extremely happy for her.”
Before praising Harnaaz, Priyanka has congratulated her for winning the crown from her Instagram account. Congratulating Harnaaz, she wrote in her recent post, “And the new Miss Universe is…Miss India. Congratulations Harnaaz Sandhu. Bringing the Taj home after 21 years.”
On the other hand, Lara Dutta told on Instagram that she had spoken to Harnaaz a day earlier. The former Miss Universe wrote, “My dear Harnaaz Sandhu, when I spoke to you yesterday, you promised ‘it will be worth it!!’ You deserve it and so much more!! You had an unwavering belief in yourself and just knew you were born for this!!
Lara Dutta also further wrote about Harnaaz’s age, “The year she won the Miss Universe title, Harnaaz was born the same year. How long have I waited for you to come and lift that crown of India once again!! I wish you a wonderful future.”
Wow, while we knew we were looking forward to this iconic victory, we certainly didn’t know we’ve been waiting for it for so long – more than two decades! Well, we thank Harnaaz for making this possible and wish her a bright career ahead.
We can’t wait to see all the new projects that Harnaaz has planned for herself and wonder if she will enter Bollywood soon. Well, a star has been born and we are very excited to know what happens next.
