“I’m excited and a little bit nervous because I don’t know how I’m looking in the new hairstyle… so let’s see what happens, but I hope it’s going to be amazing,” she said.

Patel was emotional when her hair was cut and even kissed her hair which made her popular globally.

“Oh my god it’s beautiful! It’s amazing — I’m like a little princess!” Patel said on her new haircut. (TDT)
