God only knows what Aishwarya Rai has run into. As the Bollywood star came under fire on her visit to the only Brahma temple in the country,
controversy too accompanied her in the form of her drunken bodyguard.
The incident has led priests in the holy town of Pushkar to organise special prayers to seek wisdom for Aishwarya Rai, after one of her bodyguards
accompanying her entered the temple allegedly in an inebriated condition.
It all started when the priests at the Brahma temple began fighting among themselves to decide who would offer puja for the star. The security
personnel tried to pacify them, but in vain. The scene got murky thereafter and a section of the priests sad one of the bodyguards accompanying
Aishwarya was drunk.
Following this, the priests organised a two-hour shanti paath and sadbudhi yagna near the Pushkar Sarovar so that Aishwarya gets the wisdom to
offer an apology for the wrongdoings of her personal guards. The prayers were attended by over 150 people.
The priests insisted that Aishwarya should apologise as one of three bodyguards who had accompanied her to the temple was drunk. However
she has not tendered an apology so far. According to the priests the guard had desecrated the temple by entering it in a drunken condition.
Meanwhile, Aishwarya has denied the allegation. She said that her bodyguard was not drunk, but was only trying to ward off fans and reporters
away from her.
