We saw your head-turning Paper Magazine photo shoot – and we hope you’ll ditch the pants for us, too.”
It further read, “To promote compassion for animals, will you consider appearing in a nude PETA India advertisement with the tagline ‘All Animals Have the Same Parts – Try Vegan’? I’ve attached a reference image featuring Pamela Anderson for your perusal. ” The letter also mentions that celebrities like Anushka Sharma, Joaquin Phoenix, Kartik Aaryan, and Natalie Portman promote veganism.
Ranveer had previously revealed during an AMA session that he is currently following a vegan diet. Reportedly, he became vegan for his upcoming film Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, in which he will be reuniting with his Gully Boy co-star Alia Bhatt. Directed by Karan Johar, the film also stars Jaya Bachchan, Dharmendra and Shabana Azmi. The actor recently wrapped up the film shoot.
