Mumbai, Feb 4, 2013 (Washington Bangla Radio): Making “going green” look ever so fashionable, Kangana Ranaut, having shifted base to Mumbai has now turned vegan, a decision that was quite a challenge for the style icon, especially since she was raised as a non-vegetarian, born and brought up like anyone from the sub-degreed Himachal region.
The actress who was always spiritually inclined and has taken upto yoga in a big way, has turned into a staunch vegetarian, inspired and more aware of its benefits. Apart from its positive effects on her health and fitness, Kangana also finds it to have a calming effect on her, especially since her schedule is packed with films and brand commitments.
Reveals a source, “Kangana has always been a spiritual person and has taken upto yoga and vegetarianism in a huge way – Now that she is in Mumbai she is more aware of what’s happening in and around and strongly feels that vegetarianism has a calming and de-stressing effect on her”.
Says Kangana “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”.
