The Manikarnika actress went on to add how the 32-year-old has a pattern of bad-mouthing people she doesn’t get along with. Quoted by Zoom TV Entertainment, Ankita added, “Whenever Mannara has an issue with someone, she speaks so badly about the other person that it has no limits. She attacked anyone close to Munawar Faruqui. I never had issues when Vicky was friends with Sanaa or Khanzaadi, because they never teased me about the friendship, but Mannra likes to poke.” ALSO READ: Bigg Boss 17 Fame Samarth Jurel Reveals Vicky Jain Didn’t Bathe For 3-4 Days!

I feel very awkward if things are being portrayed like this.”
