After the Dum Laga Ke Haisha actress Bhumi Pednekar recently announced that she had gone vegetarian during the lockdown, Anushka Sharma posted, “Welcome to the vegetarians club (sic),” with an image of a broccoli. Bhumi turned vegetarian and credited her climate conscious journey for enabling her to make this life choice! “For many years I had wanted to go vegetarian but breaking habits is the toughest thing to do. My journey with Climate Warrior taught me a lot of things and I just didn’t feel like eating meat anymore. I was never heavy on non vegetarian, but I took a call in the lockdown. It was actually something that happened organically. It’s been 6 months and I’m good, guilt free and feel physically strong as well.”
Interestingly there are many actors in Bollywood who have turned vegetarian. Alia Bhatt, Jacqueline Fernandez, Sonam Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor, Riteish and Genelia Deshmukh, Shahid Kapoor, Richa Chadda are some of these actors who have gone green. Anushka Sharma and husband Virat Kohli too have turned vegetarians.
