Going the Vegetarian Way in Bollywood

Comments  Comments [ 4 ]    By Gurprit K. | 28 September 2014 | 8:17pm

Who says that vegetarians don't have a proper lifestyle? Bollywood stars prove it time and again that they very much do, and also prove that being vegetarian and being dashing is not mutually exclusive! Yesterday, on the occasion of Hug A Vegetarian Day, we take a look at a few inspiring names.  

First up is the very hot and dashing, John Abraham. Abraham is a staunch vegetarian who gave up meat after he saw chicken farms on the outskirts of Mumbai. He has been heard saying "I love animals so why would I eat them?". In fact, once Abraham campaigned for the cause by wearing just spring onions and a garland of peas. Abraham is an active supporter and representative of PETA.

Girls have always gone gaga over John Abraham's perfectly sculpted body. Is this the secret behind such perfection? Men need to watch out!

Then there's the cute charmer, Shahid Kapoor. Kapoor is not just a strict vegetarian, but has been ranked continuously as one of the hottest vegetarians in India. Along with eating right, Kapoor also works out five times a week for an hour and a half. He gives American author Brian Hines credit for his lifestyle saying that after reading his book 10 years ago he stopped touching meat. Kapoor acknowledges that life as a vegetarian can get difficult at times, but also states that it is not impossible if you know what to eat and when to eat.

Fans have always loved Shahid Kapoor for his cute looks, his boyish charm, and his to-die-for body. We guess the secret behind such outstanding appeal is out as well!

From one Kapoor to the Kapoor who recently turned Khan, we turn our eyes to Kareena Kapoor Khan. Kapoor Khan was at one time a meat lover, but she chose to leave meat once she got into a relationship with Shahid Kapoor. Today, even though she has moved long past Kapoor, she continues to embrace the vegetarian lifestyle so much so that she rejected an offer to endorse a chicken brand for 6 crores! Not only that, she is also an inspiration to many other stars including Vivek Oberoi. However recently, there have been reports that she has once again gone back to meat after her marriage with chote nawab, Saif Ali Khan. Here's one girl absolutely dedicated to the guys in her life!
There's now no need to resort to extreme measures to get that perfect and healthy body. Adopt the green lifestyle and eat it right like Kareena Kapoor Khan!

When we are discussing the femmes of Bollywood, can Vidya Balan be left behind? Voted the hottest vegetarian celebrity in 2011 and 2012 by PETA, Balan believes that by being vegetarian she is able to keep her weight in control and also helps the environment. She also supports PETA publicly in the same way.

There's just one thing behind Vidya Balan's bright, energetic and confident personality and that's her lifestyle!

Amrita Rao, another femme of Bollywood, is also a practicing vegetarian. She credits her petite figure to her genes and her diet, often citing that by eating right she is able to keep her weight in check without having to work out extensively. She supports PETA and in 2011 did an ad which read "powered by tofu". She takes her work with PETA seriously and saved several buffaloes in 2012 who were forced to eat filth from roadside garbage bins. She feels it is important to care for animals and that is the reason why she is a proud vegetarian.

Petite frame, check. Gorgeous beauty, check. Pure vegetarian, check. Strong supporter of animals, check. Pretty neat a life, eh?

Moving back to dashing Bollywood men, we take a look at Sonu Sood. In fact, he is so much in love with his veggies that during the shooting of Dabangg (2012), try as he might, Salman Khan was unable to get Sood to even touch meat. Sood states that veggies give him energy and he feels fresh and rejuvenated after eating his meals. He knows the benefits of being a vegetarian and proudly advocates them.

Hot body, check. Salman Khan can't influence you, check. Energetic, check. A well-varied career, check. Sonu Sood definitely fits the bill for a cool vegetarian dude!

Now, who can be a bigger inspiration than the Shahenshah of Bollywood himself? The one and only, Big B, Shree Amitabh Bachchan is by far the hottest vegetarian celebrity of Bollywood, and has been rated so by PETA for three years in a row, A simple man in real life, Bachchan is happy eating simple foods from dhokla to aalo puri. He also loves Chinese and Thai cuisines, however, keeps away from any and all kinds of meat. If there is anything that showcases a vegetarian lifestyle, then it's Bachchan's lifestyle. Always energetic and fresh!

Perhaps that's the secret behind the success of Bollywood's king. Be simple, be vegetarian!

There are many other Bollywood personalities who have taken to the greens as well. Vidyut Jamwal, Kangana Ranaut, Mallika Sherawat, R. Madhavan, Celina Jaitley, Esha Gupta, Esha Deol, Yana Gupta, Ameesha Patel, and Vivek Oberoi are all practicing vegetarians as well. Akshay Kumar took to this lifestyle for a whole year in 2012 during the shooting of OMG! Oh My God (2012).

Vegetarianism isn't even as intimidating as it often appears to be. If our celebs can do it and look hot, energetic, fresh, and amazing, then it is worth taking a look at. We're sure many of you readers are vegetarians as well and those that are not, you might find some inspiration here.
