Where the world is going more sustainable and conscious in its way of living, people are constantly making transitions in their lifestyles. From opting for a plant based diet to completely boycotting animal derived products and non-vegetarian lifestyle, some are being more conscious than others.

With celebrities and other media influencers promoting the same, the pace at which people are making alterations in their lifestyle is quite fast. In the last couple of years, where we saw many stars turning vegetarian and giving up eating meat, one such celebrity who joined the conscious club is B-town celebrity Shahid Kapoor.  As the actor has always been admired for his physique and fitness, fans were more than curious to know of why our Punjabi Boy made the change.

Shahid, during one of his chat session recently revealed a specific book that the actor once read.  The book suggestion was made by his father Pankaj Kapur, and made him take the route of being a vegetarian. Written by Brian Hines and titled as ‘Life Is Fair’, the book advocated the side effects of killing and eating animals as food items and the actor couldn’t think of anything other than turning vegetarian. As per several reports, Shahid was dating actress Kareena Kapoor back then, who also got inspired by the book and gave up eating meat altogether. The actress came back to her old ways after she started dating actor Saif Ali Khan.


Besides Shahid, other bollywood stars who turned vegetarians are Alia Bhatt, Anushka Sharma, Amitabh Bachchan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Aamir Khan, Kangana Ranaut.
