Harnaaz, who crowned her successor R’Bonney Gabriel from the USA, walked the stage in a stunning black gown with pictures of Sushmita Sen and Lara Dutta, who won the title in 1994 and 2000, respectively.
Now, reacting to the “beautiful” tribute, Sushmita Sen, who went live to chat with her fans on her Instagram, said, “Yes, I saw her gown. I think it’s a beautiful tribute. I am waiting to give her a hug in person to thank her for it. Because she carried with her on such an important walk and moment… The legacy of her country. To see Lara and me there with her was like YES.” She added, “So Harnaaz, if you are watching, the tightest hug awaits you in person, my darling. You made us proud and continue to make us proud. Thank you for that.”
