Model-turned-actress, Urvashi Rautela and Indian cricketer, Rishabh Pant controversy never miss a chance to garner the limelight. However, this time, Urvashi revealed that she was completely unaware of Rishabh's nickname and had mistaken it for someone else. She also opened up about the online trolling that seems to have a never-ending process.
In an interview with the Hindusthan Times, Urvashi Rautela gave new dimensions to the controversy regarding Rishabh Pant. She mentioned that she wasn't aware of the fact that 'RP' was also meant for the cricketer. She revealed that till now, she knew RP was the initials of her co-star, Ram Pothineni.
Further, in the same conversation, Urvashi was asked about the trolls around the gossip, which mentioned that she had jetted off to Australia after Rishabh and his team went there. To this, Urvashi, who is all set to mark her debut in the Telugu film industry, mentioned that there is no truth in this. She also added that the fact she was stalked to get more reports on the same matter was a complete invasion of her privacy. She mentioned:
“The ones believing such news, I’d say, need to analyse. If you have not seen anything, how can you believe it? It’s (stalking) an invasion of privacy and I don’t appreciate it."
In the same conversation, Urvashi opened up about the trolling that she used to face due to her controversy with the actor. To this, the model-turned-actress said though she understands the kind of work cricketers are doing for the country, however, actors are also not so far behind from taking India's name ahead. Thus, whatever earlier she had written or posted was due for this reason only. She concluded:
"We see comparisons being made that cricketers have way more respect or that they earn more than actors. That bothers me a lot. I understand they play for the country, but actors also represent the country. I don’t like these silly comparisons.”
