Bollywood actors Shahid Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor have been named Hottest Vegetarian Celebrities for 2016 by animal rights organisation PETA India.
Shahid and Sonam beat out a strong group of competitors, including megastar Amitabh Bachchan, Alia Bhatt, Kangana Ranaut, Vidyut Jammwal, R Madhavan and Sunny Leone. This was decided via a poll wherein visitors to PETAIndia.com cast their votes.
Talking about it, Shahid said in a statement: "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 realise it. I love chicks, pigs, cows, fish, and all the other animals, too. That's why I turned vegetarian."
The actor, who welcomed his first child with Mira Rajput in September, says he is "very happy being a vegetarian".
"I believe that it is the best way to be," Shahid added ..
