Then the Bollywood Actress Vidya Balan, the ooh la la girl and Actor Sonu Sood were also among those who have taken leads. Besides them there are also other Bollywood actors and actresses.

Vivek Oberoi as it seems left eating meat after being persuaded by movie ‘Kurbaan’ co-star Kareena Kapoor who as we all know is a strict vegan. Another Bollywood heartthrob, who prefers vegetables over meat, is Shahid Kapoor. Also the 30-year-old cute actress Amrita Rao looks casual in a pair of shorts and a clingy T-shirt that reads Powered by Tofu. In the ad she proclaims: “I Am Amrita Rao, and I Am a Vegetarian”. She loves Thai food and Mangalorean food when abroad but as long as they contain vegetables. The heavyweight Kareena Kapoor who was a hard-core- meat-eater turned vegetarian for her ex- boyfriend Shahid’s sake. God knows how she lives with Saif Ali Khan now.

Malika Sherawat has a different reason for wanting to go veggie i.e. to get better kisses. When reporters asked her what she remembered about her first kiss she said it was the smell of raw onions.
