L'Oreal have denied that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been replaced by Freida Pinto as a worldwide ambassador for the brand.

After Pinto appeared in the L'Oreal Happy New Year commercial, reports claimed Rai Bachchan had been replaced by the Slumdog Millionaire star.

Describing Rai Bachchan as one of the most iconic women of our times, officials from L'Oreal released a statement saying they were shocked by the claims and emphatically denied that this was the case.

"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," said a company representative.

Explaining the actress's absence from the commercial, the rep continued: "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."
