Amrita Rao is a proud vegetarian!

Bollywood actress Amrita Rao, a proud vegetarian, has shot for a new pro-vegetarian advertisement for animal rights organisation People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India.

The 30-year-old looks casual in a pair of shorts and a clingy T-shirt that reads "Powered by Tofu" in the ad, through which she proclaims: "I Am Amrita Rao, and I Am a Vegetarian".

"I call being vegetarian the Wow Rao diet. Wow because I know that being vegetarian is the best thing I can do for myself, the animals and the environment," Amrita said in a press statement.

"Pulses can get pulses racing, while corpse cuisine slows you down. Kick the meat habit and you’ll look and feel better than ever," added the actress, who featured in films like Main Hoon Na and Vivaah.

Rao joins a growing list of celebrities like Lara Dutta, Pamela Anderson, Shahid Kapoor, R. Madhavan and Anil Kumble, who have teamed up with PETA to promote a healthy vegetarian diet.(IANS)
