Cricket and Bollywood have always shared a closed bond. Cricketers like Yuvraj Singh, Virat Kohli, Zaheer Khan and Harbhajan Singh have married Bollywood actresses. Besides, rumours of relationships between cricketers and actresses have always done the rounds on the internet. And as per the recent reports, Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant has blocked actress Urvashi Rautela on WhatsApp.
In December 2019, Pant’s dinner date with Urvashi also made headlines. According to Spotboye, date night happened just a day prior to the T20I series decider between India and West Indies.
Urvashi was constantly trying to get in touch with Rishabh, but the 22-year-old cricketer did not want to take anything forward with the actress and decided to block her on the instant messaging service app, WhatsApp.
However, Urvashi’s spokesperson has revealed that it was their mutual call to block each other. “It was a mutual decision to block one another,” a source close to Urvashi was quoted as saying in Spotboye.
Rishabh, on New Year’s eve, had dedicated a post to his girlfriend Isha Negi. The caption of the pic, in which Rishabh can be seen with Isha on a snow-covered mountain, read, “I like me better when I’m with you”.
This is not the first time that Urvashi has tried to build a relationship with an upcoming Indian cricketer. Earlier, her name was linked with all-rounder Hardik Pandya, however, the Baroda-lad recently got engaged to
Serbian actress Natasa Stankovic, putting a full stop to all the rumors.
