Mannara Chopra and Munawar Faruqui's equation changed for the worse after Ayesh Khan entered Bigg Boss 17 as a wild card contestant. Until she entered the show, Mannara and Munawar were on good terms with each other. However, their friendship went downhill due to certain misunderstandings. Despite that, Mannara admitted on Weekend Ka Vaar that she likes Munawar but 'as a friend'. The actress initially said 'I like him', however, she gave clarity about liking Faruqui 'as a friend' to Anurag Dobhal.

Salman Khan initially slammed Ayesha Khan for talking behind Munawar's back to Mannara. Later, the host told Chopra, "If you like Munawar, you like Munawar." Following that, Samarth Jurel and Isha Malviya asked the actress if she liked the stand-up comedian. To this, Mannara mentioned, "Not in that way." 


When Isha prompted friendship, Mannara said, "I like him (as a friend)." However, Salman mentioned that everyone can see that the actress likes Munawar. He even questioned Mannara as to why she was making reasons to avoid the question. That's when Mannara stated, "It was a moment where even I couldn't understand what was happening to me."

This conversation continued with Anurag Dobhal telling Mannara that she admitted to liking Munawar when Salman asked if she likes him. To this, the actress said, "I like him as a friend," However, Anurag teased her saying, "There is no such thing 'as a friend'." And Mannara added, "Okay, I accept it. But now what can I do? I have now said it."
