New Delhi: Posing in a dress made of cabbage leaves, versatile actor Radhika Madan has appeared in People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India’s new vegan campaign encouraging people to “Turn Over a New Leaf” and “Try Vegan”.
The eye-catching print campaign debuted on World Environment Day. Radhika decided to go vegan several years ago to get in better shape to play the role of a teenager in ‘Angrezi Medium’, and she continued eating vegan even after the cameras stopped rolling.
“My character, Tarika, from ‘Angrezi Medium’ helped me discover vegan foods, and it completely changed my mindset and gave me a clearer perspective on life. I have a lot of leafy greens, sattu is my source of protein, and there’s so much variety contrary to what people think. I encourage everyone to try being plant-based – help the animals and yourself, too,” she said.
Everyone who follows Madan’s lead and goes vegan reduces their carbon footprint dramatically: animal agriculture is responsible for nearly a fifth of human-induced greenhouse gas emissions.
Radhika has joined Kartik Aaryan, Anushka Sharma, Shahid Kapoor, Hema Malini, R Madhavan, and many other celebrities who have teamed up with PETA India to promote healthy, humane meat-free meals.
On the film front, she has Kacchey Limbu, Sanaa, the remake of Oscar contender Soorarai Pottru featuring Akshay Kumar; Happy Teacher’s Day, directed by Mikhil Musale; and Rumi Ki Sharafat, directed by noted ad filmmaker Prashant Bhagia. (UNI)
