The singer was in front of a lot of criticism on social media is not the disclosure of their illness, and instead, the participation in social occasions. Talk ETimes, Kanika had said, “I would like to say to the people that I look not the irresponsible person that I am made to like. It’s these stupid rumors that I hidden me skip in the Laundry room to screening. Tell me, how is it possible for a person-to-skip screening at the port of entry, while you come on an international flight? I was properly screened at the Bollywood Mumbai airport, and I stayed in the city for a day. But since everything was closed and no work was going on (because of the industry-lockdown-due to the Corona Virus spread), have proposed to my parents, I’m coming home. So I reached in Lucknow on March 11 on the morning flight. And you can check that at that time there were no published recommendation by the government for all travel abroad to be under self-quarantine. How can you expect me to do it, especially when I shielded, and had had no health problems until I left Bollywood Mumbai? In fact, I developed symptoms four days ago.”
Kanika is currently in isolation at the Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (SGPGIMS) in Lucknow.
