Soha Ali Khan has been shooting around Bikaner, Rajasthan, for her next, War Chod Na Yaar. It seems that the villages surrounding the location are populated by the Bishnoi tribals, who are very protective of their wildlife. So out of respect for their culture, the actor — along with the entire unit of the film — has turned vegetarian for the duration of the schedule.

A source close to Soha reveals, “As the people around them are extremely protective of the wildlife, the cast and crew did not wish to hurt their sentiments. They’ve all been eating vegetarian food on the set in deference to their values. They are shooting at a village called Pitrasar, which is about one-and-a-half hours away by road from Bikaner.”

Ask Soha about this and she says, “We have many locals as actors too, and they are being very cooperative and enthusiastic. I’m loving the sets and the cinematography of the film.” The film also stars Sharman Joshi and Javed Jaffery.
