Former Miss Universe and Bollywood diva Urvashi Rautela has become the first Asian/Indian to feature on the cover of Baghdad Style Street’s March 2021 special issue. Looking absolutely mesmerizing, Urvashi is seen donning an Abaya- Iraqi traditional attire and holding the leash of a horse, along with an impressive traditional Iraqi headpiece.

The cover of the magazine reads, “Guess who runs Bollywood Now? Urvashi Rautela Bollywood’s Young Superstar”. It is indeed a remarkable achievement for the beauty queen to be on the Baghdad Style Street.



Urvashi took to her official social media to reveal her emotions in a post captioned, “Honoured to be the First Asian/Indian Artist to be on the cover of ???? Iraq’s No.1 Magazine @baghdadstylestreet . Thank You Iraq ???? Baghdad for always showcasing massive love towards me. I’m truly elated big love to all my fans & loved ones. The history of Iraqi fashion is as diverse as the different cultures and influences which have passed through the country since its inception as an independent state.”

On the work front, Urvashi will be seen in the web series ‘Inspector Avinash’ with Randeep Hooda. She will also be seen in a big-budget multilingual sci-fi film, in which she will be playing the role of a microbiologist and an IITian that will mark her Tamil debut.

The stunning beauty will be soon seen in an international music collaboration ‘Versace’ with the Egyptian superstar Mohamed Ramadan and with Guru Randhawa for his track ‘Mar Jayenge’.
