L'oreal Paris Rubbish Aishwarya Report
British, Hollywood, Indian and other media reported that Bollywood diva Aishwarya Rai (Jodhaa Akbar) has been replaced by younger Bollywood star Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire) as the face of cosmetics firm L''Oréal, and now a company statement is circulating around that it was not true.
Here's an official statement from L'oreal Paris.
We are shocked and surprised to read in some sections of the media/press about Ms. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan being replaced as the face of L’Oréal Paris.
L’Oréal Paris strongly reiterates that this is absolutely untrue and that Ms. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan continues to be our valued spokesperson, as she has since 2000. While she remains an integral part of the L’Oréal Paris world wide Dream Team, she was unfortunately unavailable for our New Year commercial shoot due to prior commitments.
She is one of the most iconic women of our times and is certainly the face of L’Oréal Paris internationally and in India for a range of products which include campaigns for Total Repair 5, Excellence Crème, Color Riche, Hydrafresh.
