There have long been rumors linking Rishabh Pant with Urvashi Rautela, a Bollywood actress, but neither of them has ever responded in any meaningful way. However, the actress referred to a visitor who had come to meet her as Mr. “RP” in an interview. The initials are sometimes mistaken for Rishabh Pant by fans. There have been past rumors of a relationship between Pant and Urvashi. However, in the public’s eyes, the two never affirmed the same. And now Urvashi had mentioned “RP” paying him a visit in Delhi. She declined to go into further detail when pressed to identify Mr. “RP” by name.
“I had a gig in New Delhi after I finished filming in Varanasi, so I had to take a flight. I spent a full day filming in New Delhi, and when I returned home after around 10 hours of shooting, I had to get ready—and you know how long girls take to get ready. Mr. RP arrived, waited for me in the lobby, and asked to meet. In a Bollywood Hungama interview, Urvashi remarked, “I was so exhausted that I fell off to sleep and I didn’t realize that I had received so many calls.
In the interview, Urvashi went on to say that when she woke up, she discovered numerous missed calls on her phone. Out of politeness, she requested that Mr. “RP” meet her anytime he is in Mumbai.
“Very, when I woke up, I saw 16–17 missed calls, and I was so sorry that I didn’t go because someone was waiting for me. I told him that we should meet when you’ll be in Mumbai out of respect because many girls don’t care about keeping someone waiting. We met in Mumbai, where the press was all over us, and it just recently made national headlines. I won’t add anything to this, other than to say that respect for others is crucial. However, she continued, “I feel like media exaggerates even the smallest item that is under progress and spoils it.
Later wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant uploaded an Instagram story stating “Mera Picha Chodo”. However, he didn’t mention any name but it indicated to Urvashi Rautela’s interview. He then deleted the story within 7 minutes yet it grabbed everyone’s attention. The story read, “It’s funny how people lie in interviews just for some meagre popularity and for hitting the headlines. Sad how some people are so thirsty for fame and name. May God bless them “merapichachorhoBehen #Jhutkibhilimithotihai.”
Urvashi and Rishabh were frequently photographed together in 2018—sometimes after dinners or events. Soon after, word spread that Pant had blocked Urvashi on WhatsApp.
