Mumbai, July 23: Actress-producer Anushka Sharma, who turned vegetarian over three years ago, says it is one of the best decisions she has made.

She stars in a new campaign for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India that proclaims, “I Am Anushka Sharma, and I’m a Vegetarian”.

“Going vegetarian was one of the best decisions I ever made. I have more energy, I feel healthier, and I’m so happy that no animals had to suffer for my meals,” Sharma said in a statement.

In the ad, shot by Mazen Abusrour, Anushka smiles joyfully into the camera, flaunting an outfit from her brand NUSH.

PETA India’s motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”.

Anushka, according to the animal rights organisation, has been a vegetarian for three and half years. She was named PETA India’s Hottest Vegetarian Celebrity in 2015 and its Person of the Year in 2017.

Among other efforts to help animals, she has announced plans to open an animal shelter near Mumbai, launched the PAWsitive campaign to raise awareness that animals suffer when people set off firecrackers during Diwali, and demanded a ban on cruel carriage rides in Mumbai.

She has joined celebrities like Lara Dutta, Sonu Sood, Shahid Kapoor, Esha Gupta and R. Madhavan, who have teamed up with PETA India to promote meat-free meals.

‘Black Panther’ star Danai Gurira: I’m hoping for racial justice

Danai Gurira

Los Angeles, July 7 : “Black Panther” star Danai Gurira says she is “daring to hope for racial justice”, and is determined to fight for it.

In an interview to Women’s Health magazine, the actress says she is “inspired” to “keep going” by remembering the “labour of those who have come before”, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

“Concerning the fight for racial justice, a fight that so many have devoted their lives to over so many years, a fight that has stubbornly refused to be won, I’m daring to hope. This is a moment that could bring about some real change and honour the labour of those who have come before. I desire to help that change come to pass in any way I can. That’s what inspires me to keep going,” she said.

Gurira, 42, wants to see “sustainable reforms” put in place to help fight racial prejudice.

She said: “We need sustainable reforms. I’d like to see anti-racism popularised in our culture, our society, language, commonality and ultimately throughout the system. That would allow for true justice to be the norm and not the exception.”

The ‘Walking Dead’ actress also stressed on the importance of self-care routine.

“Self-care is very important. I think it’s crucial, too, and I think it’s also something that sometimes, as women, we have to figure out how to make that so. Because we’re such givers, we’re nurturers, but we’re just making ourselves our best selves, so we can do the other things even better,” she explained, adding: “(Women) aren’t encouraged to understand how powerful their bodies can be. I love it when women find their power. I love it when I find a different ability in my body that I didn’t know I could find or I could learn … I always encourage any young women I speak to to explore that part of yourself … Find the thing you enjoy – and it might be lifting weights, it might be boxing.”
