Mumbai: Actor Nikhil Dwivedi will abstain from non-vegetarian food for his ailing grandfather`s sake.

His 87-year-old grandfather was recently hospitalised and was only allowed liquids through drips. So Nikhil, who is very emotionally attached to his grandfather, decided to give up non-vegetarian food, which he was so fond of.

Now, Nikhil is enjoying his decision to turn vegetarian a lot, and he has been telling his close friends and associates to "try vegetarian", says a source.

Other Bollywood celebrities who follow vegetarianism include Amitabh Bachchan, John Abraham, Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor.
