2013 will be an exciting year for me: Amrita Rao

Mumbai, Nov 14 (IANS) Actress Amrita Rao, last seen in the 2011-film "Love U...Mr. Kalakaar!", is looking forward to the New Year when two of her films will be released.

"Two of my films will release in 2013 - one is 'Jolly LLB' which will release in March hopefully and 'Singh Saab the Great', which is releasing in August. I will start filming for it in December-January. So I am looking forward to 2013, it's going to be an exciting year of releases," the 31-year-old said here at an event organised by People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

Talking about vegetarianism in Bollywood, Amrita said: "In Bollywood, the toughest thing is when actors have to build their bodies, go gymming and they need a lot of protein intake. Because we don't eat non-veg, vegetarians always lack that protein element."

However, she insists vegetarians can have a great body too.

"Of course, there are a lot of substitutes for protein - there is paneer, all kinds of sprouts. I would like to tell everybody, Shahid Kapoor and our wrestler Sushil Kumar, both of them are vegetarians and have built bodies," she said.
