Kanika Kapoor was termed ‘irresponsible’ by netizens for attending parties while she possibly carried the coronavirus. Not just the netizens, even celebrities like Ashoke Pandit and Sona Mohapatra were not pleased with the turn of events and expressed their displeasure on Twitter. Pooja Bedi also joined the celebrities to call the singer ‘very irresponsible’.
Pooja gave the example of her kids and how they acted after returning from trips recently. The Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar actor revealed that her son Omar, returned from the USA on March 15, and decided to go on a voluntary ‘self-isolation’ at home. She also wrote that her daughter Alaya F, who debuted with Jawaani Jaaneman earlier this year, also returned from Dalhousie, Himachal Pradesh, and did the same.
Pooja added that one should be ‘responsible’ while travelling via airports.
Bappi Lahiri was among the other celebrities to term Kanika’s behaviour as ‘irresponsible.’ The veteran singer-music composer felt she shouldn’t have returned from London in the first place, but said that he’ll pray for her.
Rishi Kapoor felt the hotel authorities should’ve detected her case, but after the hotel replied about her temperature coming normal, he felt Kanika was being ‘unnecessarily victimised.’
Sona Mohapatra wondered how Kanika could ‘hide her travel history’ when reports on the same started doing the rounds. Ashoke Pandit told her ‘shame on you.’
A First Information Report (FIR) has also been registered against Kanika over the controversy. The singer on Friday announced in a post on Instagram, that she had tested positive for COVID-19. As pictures of the parties she attended after her return surfaced, the guests at the party like Vasundhara Raje, Dushyant Singh, Jitin Prasada, Uttar Pradesh Health Minister and 3 MLAS have gone into self-quarantine.
