The ‘Baby Doll’ singer confronted loads of flak on social media with a number of calling her out for indulging in social interactions. Clarifying her stand Kanika had informed ETimes, “There are these silly rumours that I hid in the washroom to skip screening. Tell me, how is it possible for a person to skip screening at immigration while coming on an international flight? I was properly screened at the Mumbai airport and I stayed in the city for a day. But since everything was closed and no work was happening (because of the industry lockdown due to the coronavirus spread), my parents suggested I come home. So I reached Lucknow on March 11 by the morning flight. And one can check, that at that time there was no advisory issued by the government on anyone travelling from abroad to be under self-quarantine. So how can one expect me to do it, especially when I had been screened and had no health issues till I left Mumbai? In fact, I developed the symptoms only four days ago.”
Kanika had landed in Mumbai from London after which travelled to Lucknow, the place she attended just a few social gatherings. The singer is presently in isolation at a hospital in Lucknow.
