After Kanika Kapoor tested positive for COVID-19, a video where she attended a Holi party has also surfaced. As per information available, the party is from the Lokayukta residence in Lucknow, where the singer was seen interacting with noted personalities.
While Holi was celebrated on March 9-10, the exact date of the party in this video is not known. Kanika on Friday informed that she had ‘returned home’ 10 days ago, so in all probability, she attended the party after her return. It is being said that she returned to Mumbai on March 9 and headed to Lucknow the next day.
Kanika on Friday announced that she had tested positive for COVID-19. In an Instagram post, she stated that she got herself tested after experiencing symptoms four days ago.
The Baby Doll artist stated that she had got herself tested after developing symptoms four days ago. She claimed she was screened at the airport on arrival.
She also said her family is in quarantine, but added that she was feeling well.
Hello everyone, For the past 4 days I have had signs of flu, I got myself tested and it came positive for Covid-19. My family and I are in complete quarantine now and following medical advice on how to move forward. Contact mapping of people I have been in touch with is underway aswell. I was scanned at the airport as per normal procedure 10days ago when I came back home, the symptoms have developed only 4 days ago. At this stage I would like to urge you all to practice self isolation and get tested if you have the signs. I am feeling ok, like a normal flu and a mild fever, however we need to be sensible citizens at this time and think of all around us. We can get through this without panic only if we listen to the experts and our local, state and central government directives. Wishing everyone good health. Jai Hind ! Take care, KK
As per reports, she is in quarantine at the KGMU hospital in Lucknow.
However, not just netizens, even celebrities had vented out at their anger after reports claimed that she attended three parties post her return. One of them was with former Rajasthan CM Vasundhara Raje and her son Dushyant, who have put themselves in quarantine after reports of Kanika testing positive for COVID-19. Congress' Jitin Prasada also put himself in self-quarantine as he too was one of the guests.
Kanika, however, denied she was a part of the party, in an exclusive interaction with Republic TV. She claimed she has not attended any party in the last few months.
