"It’s funny how people lie in interviews."
In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Urvashi Rautela claimed that she is the highest-paid Tamil actress.
The actress also referred to a certain ‘RP’ without revealing his entire name but the hint was more than enough for audiences to connect the dots.
Rumours of Urvashi dating Rishabh Pant have been doing the rounds for quite some time after the actress recalled an incident where she made him wait for an entire night.
Owing to the references made by her during the interview, the cricketer took to social media to react to the post but ended up deleting it.
Referring to a certain ‘RP’ in the interview, Urvashi Rautela said: “I was shooting in Varanasi and had a show in New Delhi.
“I was shooting full day and in the night I had to get ready for the show.
“Mr RP was waiting for me in the lobby. But I was so tired after the show that I slept off. I got several calls.”
When she was asked about Mr RP, she refrained from revealing the name but continued: “When I woke up I saw about 16 to 17 missed calls.
“Out of respect, I felt bad that someone was waiting for me. I am not one of those girls who will let someone wait just because he is a guy.
“I always have respect for the other person. So, I decided to meet him in Mumbai because I couldn’t meet him there.
“However, after the meeting, a lot of paps were around and the next day, it became big news.”

She went on to add: “Sometimes, media often intervenes and at times, they end up spoiling when there are chances of something good happening.”
Following her interview, Rishabh Pant took to his Instagram Story and wrote: “It’s funny how people lie in interviews just for some meagre popularity and for hitting the headlines.
“Sad how some people are so thirsty for fame and name. May God bless them. #merapichachorhoBehen #jhutkibhilimithotihai.”
In response, Urvashi Rautela wrote: “Chotu Bhaiyaa should play bat ball. Main koyi Munni nahi hoon badnam hone with young kiddo darling.
“Tere liye #Rakshabandhan Mubarak Ho. #RPChotubhaiyaa #Cougarhunter #Donttakeadvantageofasilentgirl.”
Unlike Rishabh, Urvashi so far hasn’t shown any intention to delete her post and story as they have been up there for more than ten hours.
This isn’t the first time a controversy has involved the two.
A few years ago, after media reports said Urvashi had hinted she was dating Rishabh, the cricketer not only blocked her but posted pictures with his girlfriend on social media.
The 24-year-old attacking batter will look to put this news behind him and put up a strong performance in the upcoming Asia Cup to help India defend the title.
The tournament begins on August 27 but India’s first match will be against Pakistan on August 28, 2022, in Dubai.
