They have beaten their fellow contenders from B-Town to become PETA India's Hottest Vegetarian Celebrities.
This year, Shahid and Sonam crowned as the HOTTEST vegetarians in India
They beat out a strong group of competitors from B-town, including Amitabh Bachchan, Alia Bhatt, Kangana Ranaut, Vidyut Jammwal, R Madhavan, and Sunny Leone.
Both the vegetarians have been choosing plant-based foods making them more popular than ever.
"I stopped eating meat 4–5 years ago", Sonam, winner of several film awards, told the Deccan Chronicle in August. "What has happened now is that I've stopped taking milk and milk products. I am lacto-sensitive. A lot of people are lacto-sensitive. But they don't realise it."
"I love chicks, pigs, cows, fish, and all the other animals, too. That's why I turned vegetarian", Shahid has said. "I am very happy being a vegetarian and I believe that it is the best way to be," she added.
"Sonam and Shahid are fit, hot, and compassionate, and they're setting a great example for their fans and millions of people who want to fight climate change with their forks", says Sachin Bangera, PETA India's associate director of celebrity and public relations.
"Both of PETA India's winners prove that there is nothing sexier than compassion towards animals, which they show every time they sit down for a meal."
At the slaughterhouse, animals are often killed in full view of one another and even dismembered while they are conscious and can feel pain.
