Urvashi Rautela and Rishabh Pant’s spat
For the unversed, it all started when Urvashi made a statement about ‘RP’ in a recent interview. Rishabh Pant then took to Instagram and indirectly targeted the actress and now Urvashi has taken to Instagram to share a cryptic note targeted at Pant.
Urvashi Rautela claimed in an interview that “RP” waited for her in a hotel lobby and called her several times — she was asleep and saw 17 missed calls when she woke up. “I was shooting in New Delhi and I arrived at night. Quickly I had to get ready because actresses need more time to get ready. So, Mr. RP came to the hotel lobby and wanted to meet. Ten hours passed and I fell asleep. I couldn’t attend any calls and when I woke up I saw 16-17 missed calls and I felt so bad that someone was waiting for me and I couldn’t meet them. I told him we’ll meet when you come to Mumbai. We met in Mumbai but a huge drama happened with the paps and all,” she told Bollywood Hungama.
Rishabh then took to his Instagram story to post, “It’s funny how people lie in interviews just for some meager popularity and for hitting the headlines. Sad how some people are so thirsty for fame and name. May God bless them “#merapichachorhoBehen #Jhutkibhilimithotihai.”
He later deleted the story.
Urvashi Rautela then took a dig at Rishabh Pant by indirectly referring to Pant as a ‘cougar hunter’ on her Instagram post. She wrote, “Chotu bhaiyaa should play bat ball 🏏. Main koyi munni nahi hoon badnam hone with young kiddo darling tere liyee #Rakshabandhan Mubarak ho #RPChotuBhaiyya #Cougarhunter #donttakeadvantageofasilentgirl #love #UrvashiRautela #UR1.”
It was rumoured in 2018 that the two were dating, but their relationship ended soon after.
