Mannara, cousin sister of stars Priyanka Chopra and Parineeti Chopra, was evicted after a journey of 105 days in the show, hosted by Salman Khan.

Salman said “well played” after he took Mannara’s name.

After eviction, she said: “Thank you for the opportunity… Back to reality but it is a very overwhelming feeling. So many memories and talks. Thank you so much. I tried (being myself).”

Mannara’s mother said she sent Mannara for an “internship” under Salman and thanked him for giving her daughter the opportunity.
