Bollywood actor Urvashi Rautela has been targeted on social media after she shared an Instagram reel with Pakistani cricketer Naseem Shah.
Ms Rautela shared a video to her Instagram story where she was seen enjoying a recent India-Pakistan match at the Dubai stadium, with some glimpses of the Pakistani fast bowler. Atif Aslam’sKoi Tujhko Na Mujhse Chura Le‘ song was used in the background of the video.
Shortly after she dropped the clip, internet users slammed her for sharing a video with a Pakistani cricketer.
The actor had previously sparked a meme fest on social media after attending another India-Pakistan match in Dubai, where she was linked with Indian cricketer Rishabh Pant.
This came after she claimed in an interview with a popular entertainment portal in August that a certain “RP” was waiting for her for 10 hours in a hotel lobby to meet her while she was sleeping. She’d said she was sorry she’d kept him waiting so long.
Once the clip went viral, fans started linking Rishabh Pant to the “RP” Ms. Rautela talked about in the interview.
Rishabh Pant then took to his Instagram story (which he deleted after a few hours) and wrote: “It’s funny how people lie in interviews just to get some meager popularity and to make headlines. Sad how some people thirst for fame and name. May God bless them.”
He added the hashtags’Mera Picha Chhoro Behen‘ (pardon me please), and ‘Jhuth Ki Bhi Limit Hoti Hai‘ (even lies have limits) at the end of the note.
Ms Rautela then took to Instagram to respond to Mr Pant’s story.
She posted a note that read: “Chotu bhaiyaa should be playing baseball…main koyi munni nahi hoon badnaam hone with young kiddo darling tere liye (I won’t be ashamed of a kid like you) #RAKSHABANDHAN mubarak ho.”
