Radhika Madan revealed that she was a non-vegetarian previously, but switched to a vegan diet at the time of her shoot for the film 'Angrezi Medium'. She wanted to get into better shape for playing the role of a teenager in the film alongside Irrfan Khan. However, Radhika Madan continued to eat vegan food even after the film's shoot ended. "My character, Tarika, from Angrezi Medium helped me discover vegan foods, and it completely changed my mindset and gave me a clearer perspective on life," says Madan. She is also an animal lover and that further fuelled her decision. "I was a non-vegetarian, but turning vegan changed my life. I felt way healthier," she said in a clip shared on PETA India's official Twitter handle.
Radhika Madan further suggested that everyone should at least try the vegan diet and see how it works for them. She said that the Indian diet by itself has a plethora of vegan options, including dishes such as dal chawal, chole chawal and more. As for her own diet, Madan said that she focuses on green vegetables and protein. "I have a lot of leafy greens, sattu is my source of protein, and there's so much variety contrary to what people think. I encourage everyone to try being plant-based - help the animals and yourself, too," she said.
