Firangi fame actress Ishita Dutta has decided to turn vegetarian and to stop eating meat as she is an animal lover. Earlier seen on the small screen in the TV show ‘Ek Ghar Banaunga’, the actress said that it is a major lifestyle change for her.
"Becoming a vegetarian has been a thought that crossed my mind a lot of times in the last few years. One day, I was randomly scrolling through PETA videos just out of my love and concern for dogs.
"And I happened to come across some videos that really bothered me. I couldn't even watch the end and I can't claim to be an animal lover if I did not do my bit. So I stopped," Ishita said in a statement.
Was it difficult to give up her food habits?
"It hasn't been as difficult as people would expect it to be and not as easy as it is a major lifestyle change. Maybe looking at the bigger picture, things seem easier," she said.
On the work front, Ishita will soon be seen in a movie which will mark the debut of actress Dimple Kapadia's nephew Karan Kapadia.
