Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan and ‘Dirty’ actress Vidya Balan have reportedly been crowned the hottest vegetarians by PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals). The two actors beat contenders like Neha Dhupia and Shahid Kapoor as well as Sonu Sood, Dhanush, Kareena Kapoor and Hema Malini.
PETA India Chief Executive Officer Poorva Joshipura said, “More and more of India's hottest stars are choosing to keep meat off their plates, and when you look at Amitabh and Vidya, it's easy to see why. All of PETA India's nominees are great examples of how vegetarian meals help us stay in top physical shape." In the past, Bachchan was named PETA India's Hottest Vegetarian Celebrity three times and had even won the crown in PETA Asia's equivalent contest last year. On her part, Balan was named PETA India's Hottest Vegetarian in 2010.
