“I have been a staunch supporter of a vegetarian lifestyle for a very long time. I believe it is more healthier, compassionate and a kinder way of living. So I am more than happy to do this,” she added.
Poorna recalls how her work has had her surrounded by meat-eaters.
“At some point or the other I have been in countries like Argentina, they have steak for breakfast. Then in Brazil. There was always abundant opportunity to eat meat. Since I was young I have had huge love for animals,” said Poorna.
A known face in Hollywood, Poorna has done US TV series “Law & Order”, “Royal Pains”, “The Game” and more.
She was also in the cast of American director Bruce Beresford’s “Peace, Love & Misunderstanding” that had Jane Fonda, Catherine Keener and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
