After claiming that her rumoured ex-boyfriend, Indian cricketer Rishabh Pant, was waiting for her in a hotel lobby while she was staying there, Urvashi Rautela made headlines last month. In response, Rishabh claimed that she had only stated it to gain “meagre popularity”. When Urvashi was asked about Rishabh in a recent interaction, she responded that she doesn’t want to do any “bakwas (nonsense)”.
Following many sightings of Urvashi and Rishabh together at renowned eateries, events, and parties in Mumbai in 2018, there were rumours that the two were dating. Reports alleged that the two had blocked one another on WhatsApp much later in the same year. Rishabh denied the rumours in 2019 and declared his love for girlfriend Isha Negi.
Rishabh Pant was brought up when Urvashi was recently sighted by Instant Bollywood during an awards ceremony. When the journalist asked Urvashi if she had a message for Rishabh, she rolled her eyes and responded, “All I want to say is..umm..nothing. I am sorry.” Urvashi remarked, “Seedhi baat no bakwas. And that’s why I won’t be doing any bakwas.”
When Urvashi was getting some rest in the hotel lobby in August, a certain “Mr RP” waited for her there for about ten hours, according to an interview she gave at the time. Urvashi claimed that she felt awful for making him wait so long. “It’s interesting how individuals lie in interviews simply for some meagre popularity and to hit the news. Sad how some people are yearning for fame and notoriety. May God bless them,” said Rishabh Pant on his Instagram story, which he later deleted. At the end of the note, he added the hashtags “Mera picha chhoro behen” (Sister, please leave me) and “Jhuth ki bhi limit hoti hai (Lying has a limit)”.
It was clear that Urvashi was responding to Rishabh Pant’s Instagram post when she wrote on her Instagram Stories, “Chotu bhaiyaa (young brother) should play bat ball ot…main koyi munni nahi hoon badnaam hone (I am no naive girl to be defamed) with young kiddo darling tere liye #Rakshabandhan mubarak
