The house he lives in has an estimated worth of 60 Lakhs to 1 crore. His Roorkee house was built by his father and hence he spent his childhood there and has a personal attachment to it. The massive house that he owns in Delhi is worth 2 crores and is luxurious in its own way. The Delhi house has a chic modern look which gives it a different aesthetic. It also has a gym in it as it must be for a sportsperson. Pant is a snooker lover and hence has a pool table in his house.

Rishabh Pant’s Family
Rishabh Pant was born on 4th October 1997, in Roorkee, Uttarakhand, India. His parents are Rajendra Pant and Saroj Pant. Rishabh has an elder sister who is two years elder than him, her name is Sakshi Pant. Rishabh’s father was a school owner and was all into educating the children but when his own son desired to pursue a career in sports he did not resist. Rishabh’s father supported him to such an extent that they even shifted for his better training. Rishabh’s family had to move a lot during his training years yet they never complained.
Sadly, when Rishabh Pant made a T20 international debut his father did not get to see him much. Rajendra Pant dreamt of watching his son play for the Indian team but when he eventually did, his father passed away only a few weeks later. Rishabh Pant’s father died due to cardiac arrest in his sleep. At that time Rishabh was playing IPL 2017 and had to rush to Roorkee to perform his duty as a son. He did the last rites and cremated his father’s body. When he came back two days after, he made a half-century and did not let his inner grief affect his performance in the field.
Pant’s mother has also been the main factor for the kickstart of his journey. When Pant was in his teenage years and had to go to Delhi for his practice sessions every weekend from Roorkee, his mother would be his guardian then. Since they did not have any accommodation facilities available, both often stayed in gurudwara. She pushed him to achieve his dreams by all means and always had his back. Out of many stories of his struggle, there was one in which Pant’s mother had to travel all the way from Roorkee to Kotla to bring his documents. Strangely, she had never been to Kotla before but Saroj Pant had a strong will like her son to make his son’s selection to the Delhi team possible.
Rishabh Pant’s sister is a social media sensation. Sakshi Pant has as many as 111K followers on her Instagram profile and currently stays in the UK for her higher studies. She often shares about her life and her brother’s success too. She is a proud sister as she is often seen during his matches cheering him up with zeal.
Rishabh Pant’s Girlfriend
Rishabh Pant unlike other sports personalities has been quite open about his relationship status. He declares his love openly for his long-time girlfriend Isha Negi. Isha was born and brought up in Dehradun and completed her graduation in English honours from Amity University, Noida. Isha is a productive and enthusiastic person who loves to travel and keep her life busy. She is often spotted in the stadium while the love of her life is playing for his country. Isha and Rishabh have been dating for five years now and they are expected to marry soon, although there hasn’t been any official announcement and both are young too.
Isha is 24 years old whereas Rishabh is 25. Isha is an interior designer along with her father’s business partner. She loves to travel as we can guess from her Instagram profile where she often shares her travel vlogs with Rishabh. It is believed that both of them have known each other for a long time before they started dating. Isha is also quite confident about her relationship as she shared a cute post on Rishabh’s birthday this year, on 4th October 2022. She wrote “Happy Birthday, My Love” and tagged Rishabh in his photo. Both of them are successful and happy in their life. Rishabh Pant has many female followers but apparently, he will not pay any heed to them as his heart is owned by the gorgeous, Isha Negi.
Rishabh Pant had recently been on news, strange enough it wasn’t related to his sports career or his achievement. Rishabh Pant was actually, linked with the Bollywood actress and model Urvashi Rautela, who is also from Uttarakhand. Their love story brewed in an interview, in which Urvashi claimed that some “Mr RP ” waited for her in her hotel lobby for about 10 hours. She did not reveal the name of the person but social media took over and Rishabh Pant was rumoured to be the mystery man. Urvashi did not react and let the media create a big buzz about their alleged relationship.
Rishabh Pant on the other hand did not quite enjoy this new controversy, that too about his relationship status, as he has been quite open about his actual girlfriend. He posted a story claiming that people are using rumours based on someone’s interview. He tried to clear his name out of the controversy but it fuel the wildfire. On Raksha Bandhan, Urvashi posted the story on her Instagram in almost the same format calling him “Chhotu Bhaiya” and asking him to focus on his “bat-ball”. This incident stormed the media with memes on the controversies. People laughed it off and forgot about it in a few days but the memes are still there on the internet.
