Aamir Khan and Anushka Sharma, who shared screen space in "PK", have been named as the hottest and fittest vegetarians of 2015. In a poll conducted by PETA, Aamir and Anushka were voted as top celebrities, who made plant-based foods more popular than ever in 2015.

Last year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and legendary actress Rekha were declared as the hottest vegetarians. And this year, Aamir and Anushka topped the list beating strong competitors, including Amitabh Bachchan, Alia Bhatt, Kangana Ranaut, Shahid Kapoor, R Madhavan and Dhanush.

"It is very important what you eat, as that is what you are. So it's very important to make sure you're eating enough vegetables and drinking enough water, which I've always done," Anushka said in a statement.

Earlier this year, Aamir turned vegan after his wife Kiran Rao showed him a video about the common diseases that cause death. Aamir also decided to give up milk and milk products. "At the end of it, I was convinced that vegans are way ahead of non-vegetarians and even vegetarians," he said.

"Aamir and Anushka are perfect examples of fit vegetarians, and they're inspiring millions of their fans to try plant-based foods. Both of PETA India's winners prove that nothing is sexier than compassion towards animals, which they show every time they sit down for a meal," PETA India Associate Director of Celebrity and Public Relations Sachin Bangera said in a statement.
