Vote for your favourite PETA star models!

Sensationalism sells. And the quickest way to grab attention is shock.

People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is known to pull out all the stops with their animal rights propaganda by roping in supportive celebrities to model provocatively and promote their views.

The feisty star of films like Gangs of Wasseypur and Fukrey – Richa Chadda is the latest to join the PETA bandwagon with her sizzling mermaid act.

Fish are friends not food, she insists in the campaign, which aims to convert seafood gorgers into pure vegetarians. Are you convinced?

Before her quite a few Bollywood stars have forwarded similar sentiments.

Vote for your favourite PETA model at the end of this slide show.

John Abraham

Bollywood’s hottest vegetarian and actor turned producer of acclaimed films like Vicky Donor and Madras Cafe, John Abraham emphasises the right to freedom for every living creature and rejects the concept of keeping birds in a cage with this soaring poster.


Adah Sharma

Adah Sharma, who was recently seen in Karan Johar’s Hasee Toh Phasee, makes the same case as John Abraham a little differently.

The starlet slips into a winged outfit and directs our attention to the message written on a prominently held placard –Birds don’t belong in cages. Let them fly free.

Malaika Arora Khan

The practise of employing live birds as shabbily treated props raised in ill conditions for a circus show disturbs Malaika Arora Khan.

The sexy reality show judge and item girl protests in her trademark seductive style.

Ayushmann Khurrana

Irresponsible human beings fail to show basic empathy and care when it comes to animals or even their own pets.

To this lot, Vicky Donor star Ayushmann Khurana urges the need for sterilisation as a means of protection in order to bring the rapidly growing stray population under control.


Raveena Tandon

Topmost international designers come under fire for supporting the brutal exploitation of animals to obtain exotic skin of snakes and crocodiles that is then used to make exclusive shoes and accessories.

Raveena Tandon aims to shame them with her striking campaign and severe words.

Rakhi Sawant

Fast nearing extinction, the regal tiger deserves to be in its natural habit instead of being held prisoner behind bars for the amusement of zoo visitors.

Rakhi Sawant dabs on cat paint and striped bodysuit to appeal for this roaring cause with characteristic effect.

Shilpa Shetty, too, is all for Save the Tiger.

The curvaceous star slips into a feline costume and aggressive pose to underscore a tiger’s miserable conditions in a circus and the need to boycott this ancient form of live entertainment.


Lara Dutta

Lara Dutta’s Go Green campaign has the actress draped in healthy gown of salad leaves.

But is it enough for you to give up on your favourite Chicken Tikka Masala?

Gauahar and Nigaar Khan

The Khan Sisters – Gauahar and Nigaar probably cannot. So they pick a different cause.

Like Rakhi Sawant and Shilpa Shetty, the siblings point out the woes of India’s national animal lying in small, suffocating cages by posing inside one.
