Actor Amitabh Bachchan,celebrating his 70th birthday on Thursday,has been an inspiration for PETA,which has named a rescued bullock after his famous screen title Vijay.

The acting legend,who has portrayed characters named Vijay in 20-odd films,has been named PETA ‘Hottest Vegetarian Celebrity’ for three years in a row.

The actor was a vegetarian and thus saved animals,a PETA official said. The bullock had been severely overworked and was very weak when voluntary organisation Animal Rahat rescued it in Sangli district of Maharashtra.
