In the last two years, Bollywood celebrities have created a trend with choosing to become vegetarian or vegan. After Shahid Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Sonakshi Sinha, John Abraham and Amir Khan, among many others, Munnabhai actor Arshad Warsi too has given up on meat.
“I have been non-vegetarian all my life, but just recently I gave up meat. Being vegetarian is perfect,” says Arshad, adding that he chose to become vegetarian because of the issues that meat is creating to the environment. “I keep on reading about the effects of meat on Global Warming and then I thought ‘Why am I eating meat?’ But now I realise that it is good for the body system as well,” the Pagalpanti actor shares.
