Wed Mar 1, 9:37 AM ET
Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai will miss a chance to meet US President George W. Bush during his first trip to India because of filming commitments in Brazil.
The actress and former Miss World, 32, was invited to the luncheon for Bush in New Delhi on Thursday along with Indian opinion leaders and other celebrities.
But Rai, widely regarded as one of the world's most beautiful women, had already left to film Dhoom 2, sequel to a hit motorcycle gang movie, before the invitation was issued, her manager Harii Singh said Wednesday.
