Ahead of World Vegan Day on Nov 1, actress Ayesha Takia has posed with a fluffy chick for a new ad campaign for encouraging everyone to give up meat.
The campaign is for animal rights organisation People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), and Ayesha, in her own little way, has sent out a message asking everyone to be stars for chicken by not eating them or their eggs.
In a video interview to PETA, she said: "It's beyond traumatic to hear the things that the animals go through, when they are obviously slaughtered, the way they are kept, the way they are treated. Being vegan is something that has changed my life tremendously."
Ayesha, who has featured in movies like "Taarzan: The Wonder Car", "Dor", "Salaam-E-Ishq" and "Mod", has flashed her million dollar smile for the ad campaign.
In the past, celebrities like Lara Dutta, Shahid Kapoor, Esha Gupta, Sonu Sood, Richa Chadda, Anil Kumble, Hema Malini, VVS Laxman, Amrita Rao, R. Madhavan, Kartik Murali, Rahul Sharma and Monica Dogra have starred in pro-vegetarian ads for PETA India.- IANS
