“For many years I had the want to go vegetarian but breaking habits are the toughest thing to do. My journey with Climate Warrior taught me a lot of things and I just didn’t feel like eating meat anymore,” says Bhumi.

The acclaimed actress, who is set to release her next Durgavati on December 11 this year, realised she wanted to turn vegetarian during the lockdown.

She adds, “I was never heavy on non-vegetarian, but I took a call during the lockdown. It was actually something that happened organically. It’s been six months now and I’m good, guilt-free and feel physically strong as well”.

The star has been appreciated for her act in the film Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitarey that released on Netflix a few weeks ago.
