Vidya Balan is going great guns these days. After sweeping Best Actress awards in every award function, the latest we hear is she’s been voted the hottest vegetarian in an online poll by the animal rights organization PETA, People for Ethical Treatment of Animals.
Beating other powerful contenders like Lara Dutta, Mallika Sherawat, Kareena Kapoor and even the recent Golden Globe winner Natalie Portman, Vidya was voted the hottest vegan. The other was Shashi Tharoor, the former union minister of state for external affairs. He scored over the likes of Amitabh Bachchan, Shahid Kapoor and Madhavan to become the hottest male vegan.
“Vidya Balan and Shashi Tharoor embody many admirable qualities, but their commitment to a vegetarian diet that’s as kind to animals and the earth as it is to their own health makes them true royalty in our book,” Poorva Joshipura, chief of PETA, said in a statement.
Looks like this year all the stars are in Vidaya’s favor.
