Harnaaz broke her silence on these comments in April and revealed that she has also been diagnosed with celiac disease due to which she cannot eat wheat flour and many other things. In a new interview, she opened up about how she felt after hearing people’s opinions about her weight gain.

Harnaaz told People magazine about her weight gain, “Physically I’ve kind of grown up, gained more pounds and put on weight, which I’m completely comfortable with right now. I was bullied to raise.” Harnaaz also discussed the reasons for her sudden weight gain after winning the competition, and revealed, “I was really focused on my goal (during the competition) and I [not] Was thinking about my health. The whole time we were working out, doing a lot of activities, and right after winning, I had about a month to rest. During that time, I didn’t really work out, and I was just eating and enjoying the time with my family. I never thought it would start showing up on my body.”

Talking about how the public’s reaction to her weight gain affected her, Hernaz said, “I definitely broke down at times. Sometimes at the most unexpected times. I’d just go onstage or something. And this whole thing gets into my mind. It’s really sad.” Harnaaz also shared that she didn’t feel well when she gained a few extra pounds, after which the doctor diagnosed her with allergies she never knew existed.

Harnaaz will soon be seen on screen in Punjabi film Bai Ji Kuttange, which marks her debut in the entertainment industry. He is now facing legal trouble as the producer of the film and his co-star Upasana Singh has sued him for breaching his contract to promote the film.
