Harnaaz Sandhu is the third Indian woman to be crowned as Miss Universe. Previously, she won the titles of Miss Diva 2021, Femina Miss India Punjab 2019, and was a semifinalist at Femina Miss India 2019. Before Harnaaz Sandhu only two Indians have won the title of Miss Universe – Sushmita Sen in 1994 and Lara Dutta in 2000.
Ms Sandhu represented India today at the 70th Miss Universe 2021, held in Eilat, Israel.
The 21-year-old from Punjab claimed the crown edging out Paraguay’s Nadia Ferreira and South Africa’s Lalela Mswane.
