Ranveer Singh sent the internet into a tizzy after he posed nude for a magazine. Some called it bold, some said it was offensive but it soon went on to become an example of -- love it, hate it but you can't ignore it. The much talked about photos have also caught the attention of PETA, (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). They want the Bollywood actor to pose nude again.
The Bollywood star has been invited by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India to do a nude photoshoot for them. The organisation wants Ranveer to promote veganism through their campaign with the tagline 'All Animals Have the Same Parts - Try Vegan'. Reportedly, the actor turned vegan for his role in the upcoming film 'Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani'.
Previously, former 'Bigg Boss' contestant Pamela Anderson, famous for her support of PETA India and animal rights, starred in a similar campaign released by PETA India. "Just like humans, animals are made of flesh, blood, and bone. They have emotions and unique personalities, feel pain, and want to live with their families - they do not want to die," said PETA India Vice President of
Celebrity and Public Relations Sachin Bangera, in a statement. Talking about Ranveer, he added, "Having given healthy vegan eating a go, Ranveer Singh is the perfect candidate to encourage others to try vegan, too - for animals, their own health, and the planet."
With this opportunity, Ranveer would join vegetarian and vegan celebrities like Anushka Sharma, Joaquin Phoenix, Kartik Aaryan, Natalie Portman, and many others who've teamed up with PETA India or other PETA entities to promote healthy, humane, meat-free meals.
