Bollywood is never devoid of controversies. Now that social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram are widely used by one and all, the range of controversies varies from stories which disappear in twenty-four hours and captions to posts with innumerable hashtags. A similar controversy took place with the Hate Story 4 actress, Urvashi Rautela, who took to Instagram to apologize on behalf of her content writer, and she went a step further by blaming it on the writer’s “super hectic schedule”. She apologized wholeheartedly for the “terrible” confusion, which was caused for copying and pasting the post of Gigi Hadid, the famous American fashion model. We wonder if this was a publicity stunt or an honest mistake.

Seems like u guys tag me in a new post every day … pls stop.. it’s just negative, I really have no hard feelings towards you I just know what a beautiful world there is to go out and live in instead of trying to dissect something that you don’t even know and that you do not see 99% of. The energy you put into this does not serve your life in any way …truly ‘beating a dead horse. You guys can call it publicity gimmick. There’s nothing to figure out all the time… give it a break. this is my last comment on this matter but I hope u know it’s not coming from a bad place, just would love for you to find something else that inspires you in life….

What happened was that Urvashi was quite recently seen with the singer, Zayn Malik. To avoid the swarm of paparazzi, Urvashi made a quiet exit without letting herself be photographed. Perhaps she was trying to avoid controversies. Little did she know what fate had in store for her. Her hush hush exit annoyed the paparazzi, and more so because it was her PR agents who had informed the media about her “very secret” date. She was criticized by the media for being a publicity gimmick. However, much more face loss is awaiting her as she slammed the media back with her Instagram post expressing her disgust about the media. She put up a long post on Instagram asking the media to mind its own business and not butt into just anything without knowing the entire matter. Having said that, she finished her post as an inspirational one as she said that she had no hard feelings, just that she was trying to help the media to find something that would inspire them.

It did not take long for the media addicts to figure out that Urvashi Rautela’s post was pretty much similar to the post of the American fashion model, Gigi Hadid. The lines were apparently copied and pasted and that led to Urvashi being trolled like anything. However, Urvashi covered it up quite smartly, though we had to take it with a pinch of salt. She said that it was the work of her social media content creator, who, owing to his super hectic schedule, must have made a mistake. Urvashi apologized for the mistake and said that the creator had no idea about Gigi Hadid. She even went to say that she would soon replace her PR agent! Ahem, blame game to save your name Urvashi?
