However, her confidence should not take away from the fact that what she was asked to do on the stage by Steve Harvey was not in the best spirit of the competition.
During the question-answer round of Miss Universe, Harvey asked Harnaaz to do her best animal impression. To which she said she was not expecting to do this on a world stage, but proceeded to perform her best anyway.
What in the living 🤬 was this about? While other contestants were asked about their accomplishments Miss India Harnaaz Sandhu was asked to do an animal impression and she meow’d on stage. I want to know who wrote this question for her?#MissUniverse #MissIndia #SteveHarvey— Neeha Curtis (@NeehaCurtis) December 13, 2021
In the same round, other contestants were asked questions about their lives and career. Harnaaz was sporting enough, and deservingly got a lot of cheers in response, but safe to say things could have been handled better.
Here is how people reacted to the whole thing.
