Mannara Chopra asked for a public apology from Munawar Faruqui for his claims about being kissed by the diva

In Bigg Boss 17, we saw Mannara and Munawar having an on-and-off kind of friendship. While they used to be seen fighting often, Mannara once claimed she liked Munawar, which she later denied and mentioned that he is just a friend and she has no romantic feelings for him. However, while being in Bigg Boss 17, Munawar Faruqui told Ankita Lokhande that Mannara Chopra kissed him on his cheeks during a Diwali party, but he didn't talk about it to anyone as he was concerned about Mannara's reputation. 

However, after coming out of the BB 17 house, Mannara stated that Munawar was a good friend and mentioned him as a family. But after knowing about his claims of the diva kissing him, the latter asked for a public apology from the BB 17 winner if such a weird statement was at all true. For the unversed, Mannara ended up in the 3rd position in BB 17.
