Amrita Rao, a proud vegetarian

New Delhi: Bollywood actress Amrita Rao, a proud vegetarian, has shot for a new pro-vegetarian advertisement for animal rights organisation People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India.

The 30-year-old looks casual in a pair of shorts and a clingy T-shirt that reads "Powered by Tofu" in the ad, through which she 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," Amrita said in a press statement.

"Pulses can get pulses racing, while corpse cuisine slows you down. Kick the meat habit and you`ll look and feel better than ever," added the actress, who featured in films like "Main Hoon Na" and "Vivaah".

Rao joins a growing list of celebrities like Lara Dutta, Pamela Anderson, Shahid Kapoor, R. Madhavan and Anil Kumble, who have teamed up with PETA to promote a healthy vegetarian diet.
