I got it to work. I just simply added a hdri background image and it worked. For anyone else having the same problem, try googling how to add hdri background in blender and you will get the answer. Thanks to everyone who answered..


I guess you haven't UV unwrap the mesh. Select the object, in edit menu and Unwrap it by clicking "U" and you can either do it manually or select the Smart UV to unwrap.

Check this video to understand it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y7M-B6xnaEM

If you actually did it but still it isn't showing, then you need to share the blend file along with the textures packed in it so that others can view it(You actually shared only the blend file, not textures).
