Taking her good-girl image from reel-life to real-life, Amrita Rao uses her star power to help her animal friends as well. Appearing in a new pro-vegetarian ad for People for Ethical Treatment of Animal (PETA) ad, Amrita wears a T-shirt that reads, “Powered by Tofu”. Rao proudly proclaims, “I Am Amrita Rao, and I Am a Vegetarian”.
“I call being vegetarian the Wow Rao diet. Wow because I know that being vegetarian is the best thing I can do for myself, the animals and the environment,” says Amrita, “Pulses can get pulses racing, while corpse cuisine slows you down. Kick the meat habit and you’ll look and feel better than ever.”
Rao joins a growing list of celebrities – including Lara Dutta, Pamela Anderson, Shahid Kapoor, Sir Paul McCartney, R Madhavan and Anil Kumble – who have teamed up with PETA to promote a healthy and compassionate vegetarian diet.
