He promised Sarma that she will gain unlimited power. In conversation with Stylist, she explains, “I would have access to unlimited resources so that I could grow my brand all over the world, make the documentary I always wanted to make—the one that would finally change people’s ways and help eradicate factory farming. Basically, I could do all the world-changing things I’d been quietly dreaming about. I could help whoever I want and stay young forever doing it.”
In conversation with Vanity Fair, one of the investors of Sarma Melngailis’s restaurant claims, “She is guilty of conduct unbecoming a vegan.”
