Veganism has gained widespread popularity since 2016, and more and more people are quitting animal meat and dairy products in order to pledge their support towards animals. While being vegetarian means to quit having eggs and meat, you need to stop consuming anything that is extracted from animals, which includes dairy to be termed as a 'vegan'.

In the recent past, many Bollywood celebs have opted for vegetarianism and veganism to switch to a healthier, and a "cruelty-free" lifestyle. Have a look at the 10 Bollywood celebs who have a taken such an important step -

Shahid Kapoor - We all have known Sasha's vegetarian food habits for some time now. The Haider star had even managed his ex-girlfriend, Kareena Kapoor, to change her food habits and opt for vegetarian food. But the surprising fact is that Shahid wasn't always a vegetarian. An animal-lover, Shahid turned to vegetarianism when his father gifted him a book titled, 'Life is Fair' by Brian Hines. One read on a flight, and Shahid swore off non-veg, ever since.

Alia Bhatt - The Raazi actress is new to vegetarianism and much to her vegetarian father Mahesh Bhatt's delight, Alia seems to be enjoying her changed food habits. The actress chose to ditch meat in the summer to beat the heat but has ended up following the lifestyle.

Anushka Sharma - We all have seen the Instagram pics of Anushka and her cute fur-buddy Dude. But never did we ever imagine that the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil actress would turn vegetarian for her pet. Yes, in an interview Anushka revealed that she opted for vegetarianism because her pet 'Dude' hated the smell of meat. She liked the lifestyle so much, that she would continue it forever!

Jacqueline Fernandez - Jacqueline is an active social worker to protect the cause of animals, and has opted for veganism to steer clear of participating in animal cruelty. Not just this, she is encouraging her family and friends to do the same. The actress was also a winner of PETA-'Woman of The Year' award in 2014.

John Abraham - John Abraham is a perfect example of those who complain that one cannot bulk up in the gym unless their workout is complemented with meat protein. One of the fittest actors in B-Town, the Force star is also a vegetarian by choice, all thanks to his love for animals.

Kangana Ranaut - Like a true native hailing from the hills, Kangana Ranaut had been a hardcore non-vegetarian all through her life. Until she set base in Mumbai and saw how switching to a vegan life helped her skin, mind, and body. In an interview, she expressed, "When I decided to become a vegetarian, I realized that consuming dairy products was not agreeing with me and was giving me acidity. Hence, I switched to being a vegan and this has made a lot of difference in my life. I am very happy now."

Sonam Kapoor - Like a true Kapoor, Sonam grew up feasting on meat and her favorite included seafood and curd. But the actress slowly became health conscious and when she was on her weight loss spree, Sonam turned vegetarian and ultimately hopped on to the vegan bandwagon as dairy products were not suiting her.

Aamir Khan - The superstar has applied his Mr.Perfectionist tag to his lifestyle as well. It was Aamir's wife Kiran Rao who influenced him to turn vegan. Kiran showed Aamir an hour-long video presentation by a medical practitioner about 15 common, but deadly diseases which can be avoided by a dietary regulation. Starting with a vegetarian diet, Aamir has plunged headlong into veganism and has self-admittedly quit milk, ghee, and dairy sweets.

Esha Gupta - The Dhoom star changed her lifestyle and turned vegetarian when she realized the consequences of opting for a lifestyle that meant butchering animals. Now Esha also endorses various ad campaigns for PETA and enjoys leading her fully plant-based vegan lifestyle.

Sonakshi Sinha - Sona has always stood up against animal cruelty, and the actress gave up meat to practice what she preached. It helped her lose a bunch of weight, and the actor confessed that turning vegan helped her in boosting her metabolism.
