Mumbai: Miss Universe Harnaaz Sandhu revealed that she has “kind of grown physically and got more pounds” since being crowned in December, adding that she’s “totally comfortable” with it.

Speaking to People, Harnaaz said, “Physically I have kind of grown, got more pounds and increased my weight, which I am totally comfortable about right now. I was bullied for gaining weight. It was kind of uncomfortable and really surprising for me to see how people started having their opinions, which should not really matter.”

“It’s not about how you look, it’s about who you are on the inside and how you treat people and what you believe in,” he said.

Harnaaz also said that seeing the negative comments of people, she is broken many times.

“I definitely break down at times. Sometimes at the most unexpected times. I’m just about to go on stage or something and this whole thing pops into my mind. It’s really sad,” she admitted.

The Chandigarh-based model suffers from celiac disease, an immune response to eating gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye.

“I’m allergic to gluten. I can’t find wheat or anything that contains wheat. Also, I’m allergic to some soy and coconut. I’m allergic to eggs and I realized that when I came to New York. Because (eggs) is considered a vegetarian) and it is known as a non-vegetarian in India. It took me a while to realize that the things I was allergic to were still there. I didn’t know,” she shared.

Harnaaz is the first Indian woman to secure the Miss Universe win in 21 years after Lara Dutta won the pageant in 2000.
