Cricketers and Bollywood stars enjoy unparalleled fame in India. It is often that the paths of these two popularity juggernauts cross and they end up becoming acquittances and sometimes more.
There have been many cricketers and actresses who have dated each other and many have also taken the next step and married. Rishabh Pant, the Indian cricket star, has also been linked with many from the movie industry with Urvashi Rautela among the most known.
A recent video has surfaced where the 28-year-old actress has spilt the beans on her relationship with Pant and revealed an instance where she could not meet Pant who waited for hours in her hotel lobby.
Throughout the video which was from an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Rautella talks of a person with the initials ‘RP’ as she did not want to name him. She said, that they were supposed to meet in Delhi but because of a tiring journey from Varanasi and a shoot in Delhi, she dozed off while “RP” waited in her hotel lobby.
She said that she felt bad when she saw 16-17 missed calls after she woke up. She was unhappy that she couldn’t meet RP despite him waiting for her for many hours.

Rautela goes on to say that the two eventually met in Mumbai but the relationship ended after the media blew it out of proportion and ruined it. Though she does not name Pant in the video, the fans were quick to join the dots.
