Famous actress Sonam Kapoor is named People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India’s Person of the Year for 2018 for her contribution towards animal welfare. She is a vegan and not only she ticks off the benefits of it every now and then but also requests others to adopt a vegan diet.

Sonam started a business of fashion brands Rheson with her sister Rhea. She keeps animal skin out of the handbag line.
