Hardly is there anyone who would differ with this title that has been given to veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) after conducting a survey. Yes, the title is that of the Asia’s sexiest vegetarian male.
Touching that dreadful age line of 60 and already a proud grandfather, Amitabh still retains his charisma and magnetism. In the poll that was conducted by PETA, among other Asian contenders in the running, besides Amitabh, Madhavan was the only Indian contender. Among the Asian female contenders Bollywood actresses like Hema Malini, Kareena Kapoor, Mahima Chaudhry and Vidya Balan were considered. However, it was Hong Kong’s singer-actress Faye Wong who was voted as Asia’s sexiest vegetarian female.
The director of Peta in Asia-Pacific region said,
“Going vegetarian is the best thing you can do for animals, the earth and your health. Plus there’s no easier way to stay slim and sexy – and Faye and Amitabh are living proof.”
