Amitabh Bachchan voted 'hottest vegetarian'
Legendary Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan has been voted the "hottest vegetarian alive" for the third consecutive year in an online poll conducted by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).
Hollywood actress Alicia Silverstone was adjudged the "hottest vegetarian alive" in the women's category.
The 62-year-old Bachchan edged out actors Dev Anand and Shahid Kapoor and cricketer Anil Kumble to extend his monopoly on the title, instituted three years ago.
Long-time PETA activist Silverstone became the first international star to claim the title, beating former title-holder and supermodel Yana Gupta, actress Pamela Anderson and TV personality Mandira Bedi.
Other top finishers in the men's category were James Bond movie star Pierce Brosnan and "Lord of the Rings" star Orlando Bloom, while actress Amrita Arora, former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham and Avanti Birla finished as top contenders for the women's title.
Bachchan, who has graced the silver screen for the last three decades, has also received international acclaim for his role in founding the Asian Conservation Awareness Programme (ACAP), which is dedicated to protecting endangered wildlife and their habitats.
"From Bollywood to Hollywood and all places in between, everyone is realising that the best thing they can do for the animals and themselves is to adopt a healthy, humane and delicious vegetarian diet", PETA India chief functionary Anuradha Sawhney said.
