Hindi cinema actress Urvashi Rautela grabbed the headlines around the same time last year for her link-up with star Team India cricketer Rishabh Pant. The fans have dug out the rumours after the actress denied knowing any cricketer during a recent question-answer session on social media.
Rautela and Pant’s dating rumours were one of the most debated topics in the country last year. Though both the cricketer and actress never breathed a word regarding the same, many news portals reported the story of Rishabh blocking the Bollywood diva to cut all the ties with her. Reportedly, Rishabh Pant blocked Urvashi Rautela from his social media and other platforms as he didn’t want to take things forward between them.
A year later, Rautela again became the focal point of discussion among the cricket fans after she answered a question regarding the sport. The actress, who is quite popular on social media hosted a question-answer session on March 31 on Instagram where she answered various queries for her fans regarding her personal and professional life. Amidst all the questions, a fan also asked the name of her favourite cricketer.
The 27-year-old managed to divert all the limelight towards herself with her answer. The film star asserted that she isn’t into watching cricket at all and thus doesn’t know any player but has a deep respect for the legendary Sachin Tendulkar and current Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli.
“Favourite cricketer?” – a fan had asked the actress. “I don’t watch cricket at all so don’t know any cricketers. I have deep respect for Sachin Sir & Virat sir,” she replied.
Urvashi Rautela’s answer grabbed a lot of attention on social as fans soon dug out her past link-ups with Rishabh Pant. It also initiated a meme fest on Twitter and Instagram with various people coming up with hilarious views regarding the whole situation.
