British actress Elizabeth Hurley's trip to India to meet the family of playboy beau Arun Nayar wasn't quite the success she would have been hoping for - his grandmother refused to meet her.

The Brunette beauty, 37, last week (begs24MAR03) joined Nayar and his German-born mother GUNNAR, after jetting out to Bombay for her nerve-racking lunch date.

According to sources close to the Austin Powers babe, the meeting was a triumph for Hurley - and speculation is now rife the glamorous pair will get married.

But British tabloid the LONDON EVENING STANDARD reports Nayar's grandmother KAILASH refused to meet her after seeing photographs of Arun and Liz kissing last month (FEB03).

Kailash tells the newspaper, "In India people who come from good families don't behave like this."
