When Harnaaz was asked about the advice she would give to young women to cope with pressure, she said that the biggest pressure the youth of today was facing was to believe in themselves, to know that's what made them beautiful. One should stop comparing oneself with others.

It was on  May 21, 1994, when Sushmita had won the title of Miss Universe. The diva at that time was only 18-years-of-age. When she had lifted the trophy, Sushmita's friend had made a call to make her family aware of the rare feat their daughter had achieved. Reportedly,  Wing Commander, Subir Sen did not have any time to even celebrate this moment.

The press had reached the house and had asked questions about Sushmita, who had made them proud. The other family members were showing old photos of Sushmita and were also talking of her achievements. Her dad was also picking up calls from old and new and relatives close and distant.
