Mumbai | Dec 5
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan and actress Sunny Leone have been raking in the votes for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India's Hottest Vegetarian Celebrity 2016 contest.
Sunny, who makes her debut on the list, said: '(T)ook me a while (to) come (to) terms with (vegetarianism)...but I have seen things I can't erase from my mind which made me stop eating meat'.
Hot on their heels are Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Jacqueline Fernandez, Shahid Kapoor and R. Madhavan.
In PETA's 'Glass Walls' video expos, narrated by R. Madhavan, chickens' throats are cut while they are still conscious, and pigs scream as they're stabbed in the heart. Cows are seen crammed into vehicles in such large numbers that their bones break as they're hauled off to slaughter houses, where many are dismembered while they're still alive.
PETA India will announce the winners before the end of the year.
