Miss Universe Harnaaz Sandhu has revealed her excitement for what is to come in her life.
Sandhu is a producer with two forthcoming Punjabi films on the way and hopes to make a move to Bollywood soon.
“I would like to be there as an actress because it was always my goal, and I don’t wish to be a typical actress. I want to become an influent actor, who has powerful characters that challenge stigmas and stereotypes of the gender of women and is their role in the world,” Sandhu told ANI.
India’s Harnaaz Sandhu celebrates after winning Miss Universe 2021 during the 70th Miss Universe pageant on Monday, December 13. 13th, 2021, at Eilat, Israel.
While Sandhu has created her name in the history books, she believes she is nothing more than a “desi girl.”
“Apart from my interests -acting and modeling I am also a fan of gardening as I’ve always been in touch with the natural world, and I love cooking. This makes me a normal, just like a desi girl, I’d say,” she explained.
Additionally, Sandhu shared that she enjoys being around people.” I enjoy spending time with people because I learn a lot from them, and that’s the way life works in which we all support one another and learn from one another,” she signed off.
Sandhu 21, 21, was the winner of her Miss Universe crown after 21 years.
India has previously won the crown two times, with Sushmita Sen claiming the crown in 1994 and Lara Dutta in 2000.
