Bollywood Actress Decides to Ditch Meat and Dairy

Kangana Ranaut cites mental and physical benefits as well as her move to Mumbai as the reasons why she switched to a plant-based diet.

Award-winning Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut has gone vegan, reports glamsham.com. This is a notable transition for the Indian starlet who was born and raised in the Himachal region of the country where meat is a standard part of the diet. Ranaut notes though that switching to plant-based foods has not only improved her health, but it has brought her a much-needed calmness amid her busy film schedule. “I think being a vegan has done wonders for my lifestyle apart from keeping me healthy and more active it has also calmed me as a person ... I hope to set an example for all my fans,” Ranaut tells the news outlet.
