MUMBAI: With her hard work, Miss Universe Harnaaz Sandhu has carved a niche for herself in showbiz. She is talented and good-looking and has inspired many people with her achievement.
Recently, the diva walked ramp at Lakme Fashion Week. While she looked stunning, a few netizens marked that she has gained weight and trolled and body-shamed her for the same.
However, recently at an event, the actress gave it back to the trolls and revealed that she has Celiac disease. Harnaaz said, "I'm one of those individuals who was first bullied that 'she's too skinny' and now they bully me saying 'she's fat'. Nobody knows about my Celiac disease. That I can't eat wheat flour and many other things.” Celiac disease is an immune reaction to eating gluten. Further talking about the health condition, Sandhu said, "When you go to a village, you see changes in your body. And I went to New York for the very first time... It is a whole other world altogether.”
Further, Harnaaz revealed that she believes in body positivity. "I'm someone who believes in body positivity and one of the Miss Universes for the very first time is going through that. On the platform of Miss Universe, we talk about women empowerment, womanhood, and body positivity. And if I am going through that... I know there are a lot of people who are trolling me and it's okay because that's their mindset, their stigmas, but there are a lot of other individuals who are trolled every day irrespective of their Miss Universe or not. I'm empowering them by making them feel that if I feel gorgeous, you are beautiful too,” she said.
