Singer Kanika Kapoor is currently the only celebrity from Bollywood who tested positive for Coronavirus. In a now-deleted Instagram post, the singer had revealed that she has tested positive. In an exclusive conversation with Bollywood Hungama, actress Urvashi Rautela who is friends with Kanika Kapoor spoke about her testing positive.
Kanika Kapoor arrived back in India from London on March 9. The singer who stayed at a luxurious hotel in Lucknow was tested positive on March 20. Talking about Kanika, Urvashi said, “Kanika is someone who stays very clean, she maintains her hygiene really well. So, you need to be extra careful if you do not want to contract the virus.”
After testing positive, videos and pictures of Kanika Kapoor attending parties in Lucknow surfaced online. Kanika’s father in an interview also revealed that she came in contact with nearly 400 families including several politicians. However, Kanika Kapoor has been in denial and said that she only attended one small gathering. This led to an outrage on social media, with people terming her irresponsible. “I don’t know how much of these media reports I can believe. I am just hoping that all the people who have tested positive get well soon,” Urvashi said.
Urvashi further said, “I am just hoping she comes out of it fast. This virus is not targeting any class, it can happen to anybody. If it can happen to the Prime Minister of the UK, it can happen to anyone. So the people who think that nothing will happen to them are wrong.”
