The controversy between actor Urvashi Rautela and cricketer Rishabh Pant refuses to die. Days after Urvashi claimed in an interview that a person she identified only as “RP” once waited for her in a hotel lobby for hours, Rishabh appeared to mock her on social media, only to delete the post minutes later.

Urvashi and Rishabh have a history with the actor claiming in the past that she was dating the cricketer only for him to deny it and promptly block her on social media. However, the two were romantically linked at one point after being spotted together in Mumbai once.
In a recent interview with Bollywood Hungama, Urvashi talked about an incident where someone waited all night to meet her. She said: “I was shooting in New Delhi and I arrived at night. I had to get ready quickly because actresses need more time to prepare. So Mr RP came to the hotel lobby and wanted to meet. Ten o’clock passed and I fell asleep I couldn’t attend calls and when I woke up I saw 16-17 missed calls and I felt so bad someone was waiting for me and I couldn’t meet them I told him we will meet when you come to Mumbai We met in Mumbai but a huge drama happened with the daddy and stuff.”
When asked who RP is, Urvashi simply said, “I won’t name him.” But many on social media said the actor was talking about Rishabh Pantwho is currently the wicketkeeper in the Indian team.
On Thursday, Rishabh posted a message to Instagram Stories, which many believed was a message for Urvashi. However, the cricketer did not name the actor. “It’s funny how people lie in interviews just for lack of popularity and to make headlines. Sad how some people thirst for fame and name. May God bless them,” the note read. He then added hashtags – Mera Picha Chhoro Behen (leave me alone sister) and Jhuth Ki Bhi Limit Hoti Hai (there is also a limit to the lies). Rishabh later deleted the post.
This is not the first time there has been a controversy between the two. A few years ago, after media reports said that Urvashi had hinted that she was dating Rishabh, the cricketer not only blocked her but also posted photos with his girlfriend on social media.
