Authors: Ecroaker. com Boosters.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan looked breathtakingly beautiful, at an event in Dubai, for an international watch brand.

However, believe it or not, there's a story of panic and frenzy behind all the grace and elegance. According to a report in Pinkvilla, the actress and her team were left stranded, as her makeup artist, Daniel Bauer, wasn't able to make it on time.

Daniel was booked by Aishwarya's watch brand in December for an event with Aishwarya for January 11 last week in Dubai. Everything including the tickets, visas and other travel arrangements had been seen to him and his assistant in advance. On the day of leaving (the flight was to take off on January 11 at 3. 55am), his manager called and said his shoot was extended so Daniel wouldn't be able to make it," a source said.

Apparently Ash was furious, and had to look for last-minute replacements. Finally at 11. 30 pm, they contacted another hair and makeup artist, Adrian and Aasif, who were luckily available and their tickets were done," the source added.
