Harnaaz Sandhu recently defended Miss Universe host Steve Harvey, after the US TV personality made her meow during the live telecast of the said 2021 pageant.
The 21-year-old beauty queen, who was asked about the issue, which occurred during a Q&A segment at the said pageant, stated that she didn’t find the request inappropriate at all.
“I am happy that Steve, such a spontaneous and wonderful personality asked me such a question that I could be myself on the stage and I got to showcase one of my big talents,” she said.
In the same interview, Harnaaz stated that she would love to become a successful actor in the future, having already worked on several acting projects.
“One of my passions is acting and breaking the stereotypes at the same time by choosing strong characters of what women are and can be. So, this will be the right thing to do,” she said.
Harvey was previously criticised for asking her to do an animal impersonation – which Harnaaz said was one of her talents.
“I am not expecting to do it at world’s stage, but I have to do this. I have no other option,” she said, lightheartedly, and proceeded to meow like a cat during the event held in Eilat, Israel earlier this month.
