Bollywood actors are a constant source of fitness instigation for many. Several fitness experts believe that one has to consume meat and seafood in order to gain a more meaner physique and to meet body’s protein requirements, especially for those who are into strenuous work out regime. However, there’s a growing number of people across the globe who are taking to becoming vegan or vegetarian in order to reap benefits of leading a healthier lifestyle. In Bollywood too there’s a wave of actors who are vegetarians and yet have an enviously fit body.
