Shahid Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor had some strong contenders to fight with before they were crowned the hottest vegetarians by PETA. Like every year, this year too, the organization has released their winners of celebs who are the hottest vegetarians. Being an animal rights organisation, this is one awards category they hold every year. The organisation has honored a lot of celebs in the past who have taken home this coveted trophy. And this year the two actors who have managed to win this are Shahid and Sonam. Having given up on meat eating, both the actors resorted to vegetarian lifestyle for quite a while now.
Both of them had some strong contenders to fight with before attaining this title. Shahid and Sonam beat out a strong group of competitors, including Amitabh Bachchan, Alia Bhatt, Kangana Ranaut, Vidyut Jammwal, R Madhavan and Sunny Leone. Wow, that’s pretty awesome. On the same, Sonam stated, “I stopped eating meat 4–5 years ago. What has happened now is that I’ve stopped taking milk and milk products. I am lacto-sensitive. A lot of people are lacto-sensitive. But they don’t realize it.” Sasha, on the other hand, had a very funny but cute way of embracing the trophy as he said, “I love chicks – pigs, cows, fish, and all the other animals, too. That’s why I turned vegetarian. I am very happy being a vegetarian and I believe that it is the best way to be.”
On announcing the winners of PETA India’s Hottest Vegetarian, associate director of celebrity and public relations head, Sachin Bangera also stated, “Sonam and Shahid are fit, hot, and compassionate, and they’re setting a great example for their fans and millions of people who want to fight climate change with their forks. Both of PETA India’s winners prove that there is nothing sexier than compassion towards animals, which they show every time they sit down for a meal.
