Bollywood siren Mallika Sherawat has been voted the hottest female vegetarian celebrity in a poll by People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). South star Dhanush of ‘Kolaveri Di’ fame has been named the hottest male vegan.
“Thousands of people cast their votes to help PETA India determine the Hottest Vegetarian Celebrities of 2011, and Dhanush and Mallika Sherawat have been declared the winners,” PETA said in a press release.
Mallika said about her being a vegan: “If I had to pick the very best thing about being vegan, it's my clear conscience.”
Dhanush, who shot to national fame with his chirpy video ‘Why This Kolaveri Di’ was quoted as saying he felt light and healthy being vegetarian.
“There's nothing sexier than someone who exudes passion and compassion - and our winners have plenty of both,” PETA India's chief functionary, Poorva Joshipura, said.
The winners were chosen by PETA India on the basis of the total number of votes each celebrity received, each celebrity's potential to reach a large audience and PETA India's assessment of each celebrity's attractiveness.
