A few days back, Miss Universe Harnaaz Sandhu walked the ramp at Lakme Fashion Week. While she looked stunning, some netizens marked that she had gained weight and trolled and body-shamed her for the same. However, at a recent event, the actress responded to the trollers and revealed that she has celiac disease. Harnaz said, “I’m one of those people who was bullied earlier that ‘she’s too skinny’ and now they bully me by calling me ‘that fat.’ Can’t eat flour and many other things.”
Celiac disease is an immune response to eating gluten. Talking further about the state of health, Sandhu said, “When you go to a village, you see a change in your body. And I went to New York for the first time… It’s a whole different world altogether. ”
Harnaaz further revealed that she believes in body positivity. Miss Universe said, “I am a believer in body positivity and one of the first Miss Universe is going through this. On the Miss Universe stage, we talk about female empowerment, femininity and body positivity. And if I’m going through this… I know there are a lot of people who are trolling me and that’s okay because it’s their mindset, their stigma, but there are many other individuals who are trolled every day, Regardless of whether their Miss Universe or not. I am empowering them by making them feel that if I feel beautiful, you are beautiful too.”
Speaking further about the notion of the beauty pageant, Hernaz said, “If you think I am the most beautiful girl that’s why I won Miss Universe, I’m sorry, you are wrong. I can’t be the prettiest (girl)” , but I may be one of those courageous and confident girls who believe that even though I am fat, even if I am thin, it is my body, I love myself. I love change and you appreciate it Because not everyone can go through changes. So be happy if you are going through changes. If you are facing challenges in life, you should be grateful because it means something good is about to happen.”
