BH CORRESPONDENT, Lucknow: A day after Bollywood singer Kanika Kapoor issued a clarification regarding her COVID-19 controversy, the Lucknow Police pasted a notice at her house, asking her to record her statement.
“I stayed quiet not because I am wrong but in fact being fully aware that there have been misunderstandings and wrong exchange of information. I was giving time for the truth to prevail and for people to reach their own realisation,” said Kapoor on her Instagram post. The Baby Doll singer has returned to her home in Lucknow from the city’s Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences (PGIMS).
Kanika was admitted into a hospital on March 20 after being tested positive for coronavirus and has been battling accusations for not adhering to quarantine rules strictly.
Regarding accusations that she spread the coronavirus by being a social butterfly, the singer claimed that every person that she had come in contact with in Mumbai and Lucknow have shown no symptoms of COVID-19.
“In fact, all of them have tested negative. I travelled from UK to Mumbai on 10th of March and was duly screened at the Mumbai International Airport. There was no advisory to quarantine myself on March 10,” she said.

“I had symptoms on the 17th and 18th of March so I requested to be tested … And on 20th March I was tested positive and I chose to go to the hospital.” she said.
On Sunday, she posted a photo of herself having a cup of tea with her family members. She wrote, “All you need is a warm smile, a warm heart and a warm cup of tea #familytime #lucknowdiaries #stayhomestaysafe (sic).”
