Now Urvashi has taken to her Instagram to respond to him. On Rishab Pant's 'Mera Picha Chhoro Behen' remark, Urvashi penned a long note on Instagram.

She concluded by adding hashtags - "RP CHOTU BHAIYYA, Cougar Hunter, and Don't take advantage of a silent girl".

January 2019 - Rishabh Pant dismissed rumours and announced his relationship with girlfriend Isha Negi. Rishabh shared a picture with Isha on Instagram and wrote a message for her, "Just want to make you happy because you are the reason I am so happy."
