The sexy Vidya Balan and MP Dr. Shashi Tharoor have won the Hottest Vegetarian Celebrity poll by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India. Tharoor and Balan beat out early leaders R. Madhavan and Lara Dutta to claim the title after facing stiff competition from the likes of Mallika Sherawat, Natalie Portman, Kareena Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan, Shahid Kapoor and Bryan Adams.
“I am vegetarian”, Balan said. “As a result, my metabolism has improved, and this is a huge contributor to weight loss.”
“I just don’t want to bite into anything which in its natural living state might have bitten me back”, explains Tharoor. “Indian vegetarians have no idea how lucky they are to have vegetarian options everywhere, even in the buffets of five-star hotels.”
“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”, says PETA India’s chief functionary, Poorva Joshipura.”All our nominees are winners because there’s nothing more beautiful than a caring heart to go along with an attractive appearance.”
We may have not seen much of Vidya’s figure in No One Killed Jessica, she will have to keep herself sexy for her next film Dirty Picture. Dr. Shashi Tharoor is an accomplished author and social-rights advocate and is currently a member of the Indian Parliament.
