Alia, who makes her debut on this list, says, “The kind of lifestyle and exposure we have due to our profession, it is essential for us to maintain good skin, hair and health. I do have a lot of vitamin- and iron-rich food and drink a lot of water. I prefer having vegetarian food. It is a way to a healthy life“.

As shown in PETA’s “Glass Walls” video exposé, chickens’ have their throats cut while they’re still conscious and pigs scream as they’re stabbed in the heart. Cows are crammed into vehicles in such large numbers that their bones break as they’re dragged off to slaughterhouses, where many are dismembered while they’re still alive. On the decks of fishing boats, fish slowly suffocate in panic or are cut open while they’re still conscious.

PETA India will announce the winners – who will be selected based on several factors, including vote count – later in December. For full contest details and to cast your vote to help PETA determine the winners, please visit
