The reality TV show Bigg Boss is renowned for the conflicts that unfold among its participants. Despite the controversies, lasting bonds often form among contestants, extending beyond the show's conclusion. In the recent season, Munawar Faruqui emerged as the winner and the dynamics of his relationship with Mannara Chopra have taken an interesting turn.

Two weeks ago, Munawar Faruqui was observed mocking Mannara Chopra during an Instagram live session. The stand-up comedian engaged with his fans on Instagram and responded to Mannara Chopra's self-proclaimed title of "Bigg Boss 17 winner in the female category." 

Mannara, who secured the position of the second runner-up on Salman Khan's show, initially added this title to her Instagram description after the grand finale but later removed it.

In an interview with ETimes TV, Mannara Chopra reacted to Munawar Faruqui roasting her for 'Bigg Boss 17 winner in the female category' in her IG bio. The actress said, "Even if my team mentioned that in my bio, I don’t find anything wrong in it."

In defence of the title, Mannara explained that her team was responsible for the mention in her bio. She expressed pride in achieving a top-three placement, emphasizing that if her team acknowledged her as the winner in the female category, they must have had valid reasons for doing so.

Undeterred by online trolls, Mannara asserted that her top-three ranking reflected her likable personality. She acknowledged that while others may have equally deserved it, her success in reaching the top tier suggested a unique appeal. Mannara emphasized that a collective effort from the entire team and the presence of diverse contestants contributed to the show's overall interest.

Notably, the relationship between Munawar Faruqui and Mannara Chopra experienced its share of ups and downs within the Bigg Boss 17 house. Initially close friends, differences emerged, particularly following the entry of Ayesha Khan into the competition.
