Poorna Jagannathan

"Delhi Belly" star Poorna Jagannathan is the latest Bollywood celebrity to join hands with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

The 38-year-old actress, who is a vegetarian, will feature in an advertisement which will show the benefits of eating only vegetables.

"I believe in conscious and kinder eating - - I don't want to eat anything that had to brutally suffer to end up on my plate.

"Besides, a vegetarian diet equals a healthier diet: we're less at risk for obesity, cancer, high blood pressure and many more life-threatening diseases," she said.
