Actor Urvashi Rautela confused social media users with a cryptic post on her Instagram account shortly after the accident of cricketer Rishabh Pant. The post was shared with a glamorous photo of the actor that left her followers scratching their heads. It shows the ‘Sanam Re’ actor dressed in a lacy white suit with silver embroidery, silver jewelery and a glittering tiara-like headdress. Pant miraculously managed to escape when his Mercedes car crashed into a roadblock and caught fire after falling asleep behind the wheel early on the Delhi-Dehradun highway.
“Praying,” she wrote in the caption along with a white heart emoji, a white dove emoji, and a string of stars. She added hashtags #love #UrvashiRautela #UR1 to the post.
The post quickly caught the attention of Instagram users, who began wishing the cricketer a speedy recovery.
“Get well RP,” one user commented. “Wishing a speedy recovery to Rishabh bhai,” another posted.
Others asked if Mrs. Rautela will go to Dehradun to see Pant who is recovering in a hospital.
The rumors about the relationship between Ms Rautela and the cricketer surfaced in 2018 after they were spotted together at restaurants, parties and other events. But in 2019, Pant dismissed rumors and announced his relationship with girlfriend Isha Negi. He even shared a photo with Isha on Instagram.
They’ve been taking angled potshots at each other ever since. A few months ago, Ms. Rautela shared a post about some “Chhotu bhaiyaalong with hashtags #RPChotuBhaiyya and #DontTakeAdvantageOfASilentGirl that made the internet buzz.
The post was in response to an Instagram story shared and deleted by Pant. He said “some people lie in interviews just for meager popularity”. The story was in response to an interview Ms. Rautela gave in August, in which she claimed that an “RP” was waiting for her in a hotel lobby and called her several times.
On Friday, the 25-year-old wicketkeeper batsman suffered a serious accident when his car collided with the dividing line on the Narsan border of Roorkee near Hammadpur Jhal. Haridwar SP (Rural) Swapan Kishore said Pant has been admitted to Max Hospital in Dehradun.
Pant, who was alone in the car, injuries sustained on his back, forehead and leg.
