Bhumi Pednekar, Sanjay Dutt, Riteish Deshmukh – List of Bollywood Stars Who Turned Vegetarian During Lockdown

For many stars, the new normal is green. Many Bollywood celebrities used the lockdown period to ditch a non-vegetarian diet and go vegan. While some have taken to the habit owing to climate awareness, for others, it is an attempt to reduce the carbon footprint. Still, others feel it is a step towards healthy living. IANS draws up a list of celebrities who turned vegetarian during the lockdown.

“I was never heavy on a non-vegetarian diet, but I took a call during the lockdown. It was actually something that happened organically. It’s been six months, and I’m good, guilt-free, and I feel physically strong as well,” she said, adding: “For many years I wanted to go vegetarian but breaking habits are the toughest thing to do. My journey with Climate Warrior taught me a lot of things, and I just didn’t feel like eating meat anymore.”

Shilpa Shetty Kundra

In July, the actress and fitness enthusiast revealed that she has accepted vegetarianism completely, saying the switch seemed impossible to her initially.

“Over the years, I’ve realised that cultivating livestock for food, has not only destroyed forests but also been the largest sources of carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide emissions. These are majorly responsible for the climate change our planet is experiencing,” she wrote on social media. The actress also said that it is “the best change for our health and the health of the planet”.

Riteish Deshmukh

Earlier this month, Riteish shared that he has given up non-vegetarian food, black coffee and aerated drinks for a cause.

“I have given up non-vegetarian food, black coffee and aerated drinks. I want to keep my body healthy. And eventually, when the time comes for donating my organs, people should say, ‘Jaate jaate healthy organs chhod kar gaya’ (he left healthy organs),” said Riteish.

Genelia Deshmukh

Amid the lockdown, Genelia Deshmukh delved into how her perspective of looking at things changed after she turned vegetarian a couple of years ago.

“Turning vegetarian was a choice I took a couple of years ago… I honestly thought it was going to be really really tough, but I was determined to make it working On my journey, I realised the beauty of plants, the various colours I see through them and eventually the nutrients I get through them, but most importantly I feel less cruel to animals…” the actress said.

Sanjay Dutt

From the world of Hollywood, comedian Ricky Gervais revealed that he got through the lockdown with lots of vegan meaty comfort food, and at one occasion claimed “eating things you shouldn’t” causes pandemics like the coronavirus outbreak.

Singer-songwriter and actor Lenny Kravitz also revealed that he has become vegan and grows most of his own food, while rapper Snoop Dogg shared that he is taking the help of his vegan and vegetarian family members to help him consume more plant-based foods.

Bigg Boss 14 October 20 Episode: From Hina Khan, Gauahar Khan Slamming Sidharth Shukla to Rubina Dilaik’s Break Down Over Salman Khan’s ‘Derogatory’ Comment- 5 Highlights of BB 14

Bigg Boss 14s Tuesday (Oct 20) episode saw something which we never witnessed in the history of the reality show. From Sidharth Shukla’s team breaking rules in the most crucial task of the season to mentors Hina Khan and Gauahar Khan teaming up against Sid, the house was on fire literally. That’s not it, as it was not just an argument between the toofani seniors but it was kind of an ugly spat between them. Gauahar also was seen as challenging Bigg Boss over the whole chaos. In case you have missed tonight’s full-on dhamaal filled episode, fret not, as we’ve got you covered. Bigg Boss 14 Somvaar Ka Vaar October 19: Nikki Tamboli Chooses Sidharth Shukla As Her Mentor, Rubina Dilaik-Abhinav Shukla Pick Hina Khan – 5 Highlights of BB 14. 

Rahul Vaidya’s ‘Bartan‘ Issue

First things first, the inmates inside the bedroom area discuss the daily chores. They all talk about the dishwashing duty, where Rahul Vaidya tells that he has a lower back issue and so cannot continue with the work. Every teammate denies doing bartan and Vaidya also is in no mood to continue. Jasmin accuses Rahul of lying about his medical condition. Finally, after the chaos, the singer decides that he will do breakfast ke bartan along with his other duty.

Rubina Dilaik Has A Problem With Salman Khan

Bigg Boss calls Rubina inside the confession room and tells her to vent out. The Shakti actress conveys it to BB that she has not liked how her husband Abhinav Shukla was tagged as a ‘saman‘ (luggage) by Salman Khan on Weekend Ka Vaar. While talking about it she also breaks down and says she finds it derogatory. Further, she also decides to quit the show as she feels disrespected on the national TV, but later she adjusts.

It’s ‘Game Over’ Time

Bigg Boss introduces a new task for the freshers. And as the house is already divided into Hina, Gauahar and Sidharth’s team, the task was that each team needs to save their buzzer from the opponent. The team who loses the task will be kicked out of the house along with their mentor. P.S: only two members from each team can attack the opponent. Bigg Boss 14 Weekend Ka Vaar October 18: From Salman Khan’s Lecture To Rubina Dilaik to Shehzad Deol, Abhinav Shukla and Jaan Kumar Sanu in Bottom 3 – 5 Highlights of BB14. 

Check Out The Video:

Sidharth Shukla’s Team Breaks The Rule

As the task starts, we see Sid’s team attacking Gauahar’s team with an aim to press the buzzer. This leads to a fight among the inmates and it really gets ugly. However, the problem here was the uneven proportion – Gauahar’s two players vs Shukla’s three, which was wrong as per the guidelines. This stunt by Sidharth’s team (Eijaz Khan, Pavitra Punia and Nikki Tamboli) irks Gauahar and she screams at Bigg Boss for justice.

Hina, Gauahar Vs Sidharth

We expected this sooner or later. And ahead, we see the three mentors discussing in private about the task. Amid this, Hina and Gauahar put forth a strong opinion that Sid’s team broke the rules and so should be shown the exit door. However, Shukla does not agree with the two girls and we see him tagging his team as the clear winner. This makes Hina and Gauahar mad and the two seniors team up to eliminate Shukla and team from the game.

That’s it, guys! After analysing today’s episode, we feel Sidharth Shukla and team were definitely not right during the task. Well, the decision with regards to the same is still pending and we wonder what will be the fate of Shukla’s team. Stay tuned!

25 Years of Yaraana: Madhuri Dixit Reminisces Working with Rishi Kapoor and Farah Khan, Dedicates this Day to Them (View Tweet)

Besides Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge celebrating 25 years of its release, the day also marks the 25th anniversary of Yaraana. The iconic ‘Mera Piya Ghar Aaya’ song is remembered even today and we bet if there’s any girl out there who hasn’t aped its classic dance steps. The movie that starred Raj Babbar, Madhuri Dixit and Rishi Kapoor in lead is remembered for its songs and for some fine performances of course. Comedy king David Dhawan was the director of this project and while the movie is on the similar lines of Daraar and Agnisakshi, this movie is reminisced for being an entertainer.  25 Years of DDLJ: Aamir Khan Beautifully Describes this Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol Starrer, Thanks them For Making a Movie that Continues to Charm the World. 

Madhuri took to her Twitter account to remember her good ol’ days and celebrate its silver jubilee. “Working alongside Rishi ji and learning the steps to #MeraPiyaGharAaaya from Saroj ji are some of my fondest memories… Today as we mark #25YearsOfYaraana, remembering both of them. This is dedicated to them & the whole team,” tweeted the Pukar actress while also remembering her late co-star, Rishi Kapoor and choreographer, Saroj Khan. Saroj Khan Reveals That Madhuri Dixit Refused To Leave Her Rehearsals For 7 Days During Tezaab.

For the ones who don’t know Yaraana opened in more screens than DDLJ. However, SRK and Kajol starrer went on to be a huge blockbuster and Yaraana, unfortunately, couldn’t mint in the same success. Rest, as they say, is history.
