Harnaaz Sandhu in a conversation with Mid-Day, beauty gave a befitting reply to people who have been saying that she won Miss Universe 2021 because of having a pretty face.
Harnaaz Sandhu said, “There are a lot of people who say [I] won because [I] have a pretty face. But I know the amount of effort that went behind it. Instead of indulging in argument, I’d rather work hard to make them realise [my worth]. This is the stereotype that I want to break. This [win] is a lot like an Olympic [win]. When we appreciate a sportsperson who represents the country, why can’t we [appreciate] beauty pageant winners? However, mindsets are changing, and I am happy to be breaking stereotypes already.”
The 21-year-old further expressed her wish to break stereotypes in the film industry also and said, “I don’t want to be a normal actress. I want to be one of those who are very influential, and who break stereotypes by choosing strong characters, being wise, and inspirational.”
