She made her Bollywood debut with Singh Saab the Great (2013) and appeared in films like Sanam Re (2016), Great Grand Masti (2016) and Hate Story 4 (2018).

Early life and education

Urvashi Rautela was born in Kotdwara, Uttarakhand[6] on 25 February 1994 to Meera Rautela and Manwar Singh Rautela, both of whom are engaged in business. Urvashi had an extremely stimulating childhood [7] Urvashi attended Bloomingvale Public School, St Joseph’s Convent Public school, and University of Delhi until she finally got admitted to Hindu college.

Pageantry (2009–2015)

At the age of 15, Rautela got her first major break at Wills lifestyle India Fashion Week. She also won the title of Miss Teen India 2009. Apart from being a teen supermodel, she was also the show stopper for Lakme Fashion Week. Further, during her teenage years, she has walked the ramp at Amazon Fashion Week, Dubai FW, Bombay FW etc., and she’s a favorite[citation needed] of many well-known designers such as Ritu Kumar, Sabyasachi, Neeta Lulla, Rocky Star and Swapnil Shinde.

In 2012, she won the coveted crown of I AM She – Miss Universe India as well as the special award for Miss Photogenic.

After her international beauty pageant, she got a 100% scholarship from New York Film Academy. However, she did not complete the course as she had already bagged her first film, Singh Saab The Great.

She made her debut as the female lead opposite Sunny Deol. She received praise from various portals such as India Today and Bollywood Hungama. Taran Adarsh stated “Urvashi Rautela looks photogenic and though she’s a first-timer, she seems confident in several sequences.” [10] wherein India.com said, “Debutante Urvashi Rautela who plays Sunny Deol’s wife manages to make her presence felt in a brief role, looking pretty and dancing gracefully.” [11]After Singh Saab The Great, Urvashi appeared in Yo Yo Honey Singh's international video album Love Dose, which released in October 2014. [12]

Soon after, she delved into the South film industry and made her Kannada debut with Mr. Airavata, which has [13] emerged as a commercial success. Urvashi’s performance was appreciated by the audiences as well as the critics.[citation needed]

In 2018, she appeared in the revenge drama Hate Story 4. She was praised for her performance, such as the Times Of India who stated “Urvashi Rautela has the main role and her character has plenty to offer. She starts off as a girl dancing in a strip club, but as the story unfolds, her character gets plenty of twists, turns and reveals. There’s a lot on her table and the pretty actress handles the myriad emotions and shades with ease.” [17]
