As per the report of PETA, Shahid and Sonam beat out a strong group of competitors. The competitors includes Amitabh Bachchan, Alia Bhatt, Kangana Ranaut, Vidyut Jammwal, R Madhavan, and Sunny Leone.
“I stopped eating meat 4–5 years ago”, Sonam, winner of several film awards, told the Deccan Chronicle in August. “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”, Shahid has said. “I am very happy being a vegetarian and I believe that it is the best way to be.”
“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”, says Sachin Bangera, PETA India’s associate director of celebrity and public relations. “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.”
PETA India – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” – selected the winners as per many factors. It includes vote count as well.
