Aishwarya Rai Is Still L'Oreal Paris’ Brand Ambassador
The other word for beauty Aishwarya Rai is still the face of international cosmetic brand L'Oreal Paris, as confirmed by the firm.
There was buzz in the town that the Bollywood actress is no more the brand ambassador of the world popular firm and has been replaced by none other than Slumdog Millionaire star Frieda Pinto.
The rumours sparked after Pinto appeared in L'Oreal's Happy New Year television campaign.
However, L'Oreal Paris has dismissed the reports and released an official statement maintaining that Aishwarya is still its spokesperson.
"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'Oreal Paris," an official statement released by the firm said.
"L'Oreal 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'Oreal Paris worldwide 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'Oreal Paris internationally and in India for a range of products which include campaigns for Total Repair 5, Excellence Crème, Color Riche, Hydrafresh," the statement added.
