Miss Universe 2021, Harnaz Sandhu, who won the crown for India after 21 years, will be treated by her parents with ‘Makki Ki Roti and Sarson Da Sag’ when she returns to her hometown Chandigarh. “It’s a moment of pride for all of us. I can’t express how happy I am. She has always been very active and determined,” said Harnaz’s mother, Rabindra Kaur, at her residence in Mohali.
“Makki ki roti and sarsana da sag are her favorite and when she comes home I want to treat her with it. It does not increase calories,” added Kaur, a gynecologist.
Before taking the crown, a confident Harnaz tweeted: “India, tonight we will burn!”
“Finally the great day has come! I consider myself very fortunate to be able to represent my beloved country, no doubt I will do my best to get the crown for India, that is the great goal of all, and today one of us will finally be able to fulfill it”. #Misuniversity #misindia. “

“She is very confident and focused on achieving her goals. We support her passion,” he said.
Overwhelmed by his victory, Harnaz’s brother Harnoor said: “Harnaz stays calm and concentrates most of the time. From his school days he was confident that one day he would win the title and he got it.”
Harnaz, a Punjabi film actress, is currently pursuing a master’s degree in public administration.
He has also acted in Punjabi films like ‘Yara Dian Pu Baran’ and ‘Bai Ji Kuttange’.
After he won the competition, the family went to a nearby Sikh temple to pray.
Harnaz, who started modeling at an early age, had earlier won the Miss Chandigarh and Miss Punjab titles.
Sandhu’s father has 17 brothers and Harnaz is the only daughter of the extended family.
