Earlier this month, Bollywood actor Sonu Sood was crowned as PETA India's Hottest Vegetarian 2020 alongside Shraddha Kapoor.
Sonu has appeared in a pro-vegetarian PETA India print campaign, participated in the group's "Hug a Vegetarian" Day, and supported a social media appeal to push McDonald's to add a McVegan burger to its menu. He also rescued an injured pigeon while playing cricket with his son.
Last week, Sood surprised a fan by visiting his roadside food stall in Hyderabad.
The 'Dabangg' star who is referred to as one of the humblest celebrities in Bollywood industries spoke to ANI and said, "I had seen the stall set up by Anil in Social media, I felt to personally taste the food at this stall. Today I got a chance to visit and I ate Egg Fried rice and Manchurian here."
It is debatable if egg is considered to be a part of vegetarian or a non-vegetarian diet. However, the acceptance and practice differ from person to person.
On work front, Sonu has written a book recounting his experience of helping migrant workers during the Covid lockdown. Titled "I Am No Messiah", the book is written in first person, revealing the emotional challenges the actor faced while extending help.
At present, Sonu is seen hosting "Bharat Ke Mahaveer". The series brings stories that represent the spirit of solidarity in the country, and celebrates Indians who have shown extraordinary kindness during the coronavirus pandemic. The series airs on Discovery channel, and Discovery Plus app, and comes in partnership between the United Nations in India, NITI Aayog and Discovery channel.
