Miss Universe 2021 Harnaaz Sandhu posted a photo of herself standing in front of actor Priyanka Chopra’s photo at the Empire State Building. Harnaaz is currently in New York.
In the photo shared on her Instagram Stories, Harnaaz can be seen wearing her crown and smiling while looking at Priyanka’s picture and posing with her. She captioned the photo, “Yesterday at the Empire State Building got hit by Priyanka Chopra.”
Priyanka’s photo is from her 2016 visit to the Empire State Building. She went to the skyscraper to promote her show Quantico.
Harnaaz previously opened up about how she drew inspiration from Priyanka. Last month, in an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Harnaaz was asked to name a celebrity, whose biopic she would like to feature. Harnaaz said, “Priyanka Chopra. I would love to be a part of this. I think she has inspired me throughout her journey and she will continue to inspire millions of us.”
Recently, a video of Harnaaz from winning the Miss Diva 2021 title surfaced online. In the clip, Harnaaz said, “I love Priyanka Chopra. So whatever lessons I can learn from her, they are nonetheless. So I will always choose Priyanka.
After winning the Miss Diva title, Harnaaz told Rediff she wants to follow in Priyanka’s footsteps. She said: “Priyanka Chopra was my biggest inspiration. She created her own brand and represented India not only in beauty pageants but also through her talent as an actress and singer. She made the Proud India and I hope to follow in her footsteps and bring back the glory as she did.
In an interview with Fox5, Priyanka said she was very excited about Harnaaz’s victory at Miss Universe: “I was very excited about it. The last time India had a Miss Universe was Lara Dutta in the year 2000. That was also the year I won Miss World. She (Harnaaz) won the crown after 21 and she’s 21, so she was born the year I won Miss World. I’m so excited for her and hope this is the start of an amazing journey. She’s very smart and gorgeous, obviously, and I’m very excited for her.
