BollywoodHereâs what Sonam Kapoor said in defence of Kanika Kapoor
Yesterday, the news of Kanika Kapoor being tested positive for the corona virus didn’t sit too well with people of our country. Many raised questions that why she didn’t opt for self isolation instead of attending parties in the city of Lucknow.
However, Bollywood actor Sonam Kapoor came out in support of Kanika claiming that the flack she’s getting on social media is unnecessary. The actress took to Twitter and wrote, “Hey guys @TheKanikakapoor came back on the 9th. India was not self isolating but playing Holi.”
Hey guys @TheKanikakapoor came back on the 9th. India was not self isolating but playing Holi.— Sonam K Ahuja (@sonamakapoor) March 21, 2020 Well, while it seems that Sonam does have Kanika’s back, netizens still seem pretty upset about her carelessness upon returning from a foreign land where the number of coronavirus cases are way higher.
In an interview with a leading daily, Kanika spoke about what happened at the airport. She said, “So I reached Lucknow on March 11 by the morning flight. And one can check, 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.”
Panic takes over Lucknow after Kanika Kapoor was tested positive with Covid - 19
Bollywood singer Kanika Kapoor was tested positive with Covid - 19 aka the corona virus. Kanika was a part of gatherings in the city which apparently also included several ministers amongst the guests. People on social media have criticised her for the negligence she demonstrated by attending social gatherings instead of opting for self quarantine.
Now, it seems like this has led to panic amongst employees in a bank of Lucknow. As per a report, Manoj Kunar, who heads the Latush Red branch of Bank of Baroda in the city, made a visit to Kanika s residence two days back, and spent about half an hour there. In fact, Kumar was even asked to go in social isolation but the he refused to follow up on that. The employees at the branch are now worried that they are at risk since they share the same office as Manoj.
We earlier reported that an FIR filed against Kanika Kapoor in Lucknow’s Sarojini Nagar. Reports are now making rounds that another FIR has been filed in the name of the singer in Bihar s Muzaffarpur.

âThey are behaving as if I am a criminal for no fault of mineâ - Kanika Kapoor
The Baby Doll fame singer, Kanika Kapoor sent the media into a frenzy after the news of her being infected with the COVID 19 virus went viral. Netizens and some celebs slammed her for hiding her travel details at the airport and not quarantining post her return from London. Not just this, she was also ridiculed for partying with close to 100 people in Lucknow, when in the given pandemic situation, the singer should have morally self-quarantined.
Presently, Kanika, who has tested positive for Coronavirus, has been admitted to a hospital in Lucknow. In an interview she gave to a news channel, the singer, in an attempt to clarify her stand, said she is being made to look irresponsible when she is not. Talking about her travel history, Kanika recounted that she reached India on March 9, and post landing in Mumbai from London, she was duly screened at the Mumbai airport for the virus symptoms. When Kanika was asked to comment about the news of hiding in the bathroom to skip the Coronavirus screening, the singer rubbished all such news, She said that these are all silly rumours. Talking about the same, Kanika questioned reports claiming that she hid in the bathroom and retorted, “How is it possible for a person to skip screening at immigration while coming off on an international flight? I was properly screened at the Mumbai airport and I stayed in the city for a day.”
She also added that due to the pandemic, since no work was happening because of the industry lockdown, her parents suggested that she comes to Lucknow, her hometown.
Clarifying her part on attending social gatherings, Kanika admitted to the fact that she did attend social gatherings and met people, but until then, she wasn t aware she may be infected with the virus because her symptoms developed only four days ago.
Kanika also revealed the fact that she has submitted a list of people she has been in contact with, to the health department.
The singer vehemently dismissed the reports of hosting parties in her hometown saying that she never hosted a party but she only attended a small birthday bash.
Well, we just hope everyone takes a lesson from this incident involving Kanika Kapoor and does their bit sincerely and honestly to keep our country and people safe and out of crisis.

Hereâs why the BMC issued an apology to John Abraham
The Coronavirus pandemic has been one of the biggest global crisis so far. And while there are several issues related to this crisis, right from crashing economies to thousands of deaths, one issue is related to the animals and pets.The BMC apparently has circulated posters and pamphlets that suggest pets and wild animals are carriers of the virus. They have apparently advised people to stay away from their pets.
This misleading information from BMC have only made matters worse as soon after, reports started emerging that pet owners were abandoning their pets after reading that COVID-19 was transmitted through animals. Sadly, some dogs were even found abandoned in the city.
Thankfully, John Abraham, a doting pet parent and animal rights activist did not take lightly to this error. He tweeted to the BMC against this kind of wrong information. Making a rather important statement regarding this misconception he took to social media and wrote, Animals do not get or transmit Covid 19... Please don’t be misinformed.
Animals do not get or transmit Covid 19... Please don’t be misinformed. pic.twitter.com/zGFOLdmTfM— John Abraham (@TheJohnAbraham) March 20, 2020
What s more, the BMC responded to John s message by writing, Sir,We regret the misinformation that led to panic among pet owners. We too love pets & hence as soon as this was brought to our notice, all of these hoarding were removed with immediate effect.
We request you to help spread the message & help us keep Mumbai safe.

Roles that made Ratna Pathak Shah the most adored mother of Bollywood
Television, theatre and Bollywood, if there is one actress who has earned name and fame in all three zones of performing as an actress it is Ratna Pathak Shah. Though it is true that several actors and actresses have tried their hand at all the three spaces of performing but only a few have been as successful as Ratna Pathak Shah. Her performances in shows like Sarabhai vs Sarabhai, plays like The Misunderstanding, Dear Liar and films like Lipstick Under My Burkha, Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na and more have proved that she is a class-apart actress.
On her 63rd birthday today, we thought about looking back at some of her most memorable roles. Ratna Pathak Shah’s portrayal of a mother on the big screen has been loved by the audience, whether it is an over-protective one or an over-emotional one, this lady knows how to ace every character. Take a look at our top 5 picks when it comes to Ratna Pathak Shah nailing the role of a mother on the big screen…
Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na (2008)
In this Imran Khan and Genelia D’Souza starrer, Ratna Pathak Shah played Jai’s (Imran Khan) mother, Savitri, on the big screen. The story revolves around Jai and Aditi’s (Genelia D’Souza) friendship that builds into love without the two of them even realizing it. Savitri, played by Ratna is the role of a protective mother who refuses to let his son become like his warrior father. But, all her efforts go in vain when Imran decides to do all that she was scared about. Imran and Ratna’s bond in the film was wonderfully depicted and connected with the audience as it was raw and real.
Golmaal 3 (2010)
Trying her hand at comedy, Ratna Pathak Shah impressed one and all with her act as Geeta. She was Laxman (Shreyas Talpade) and Gopal’s (Ajay Devgn) mother in the film. Things take a hilarious turn when Geeta reunites with her college lover Pritam (Mithun Chakraborty) whose sons don’t gel well with Geeta’s sons. But the two are unaware of their rivalry. The way Ratna pulled this character and kept the story moving forward smoothly with her effortless acting was truly applause-worthy.
Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu (2012)
Ratna Pathak Shah played Rahul Kapoor’s (Imran Khan) mother in this film. Her character was of a fiercely dominating woman who refuses to move an inch when it comes to an argument and her image in the society. Ratna totally wowed the audience with her performance as it was strong and added the necessary conflict in the story as her son loses his job and is too fearful to tell his parents. Apart from Imran, Kareena Kapoor Khan also starred in this unusual love story.
Playing the character of Nirmala Devi Rathore in Khoobsurat, Ratna Pathak Shah came out as a total winner. She played Fawad Khan’s royal mother, who refuses to accept anything below perfection. She is seen as a woman of power and substance and is not too receptive to new people coming into the family, specially if they don’t belong to the royal family. Well, in this love story, between Fawad Khan and Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, she played a roadblock who decides to give his son a reality check when she sees that he is falling in love with a commoner.
Kapoor & Sons (2016)
Sunita Kapoor’s character will surely remain close to every person’s heart who has watched this film. Ratna Pathak Shah plays mother in the film who realises that she hasn’t been perfect all her life, she has made her mistakes when it comes to bringing up her children and has even hidden things from them that she shouldn’t have. The complexities of this character have been beautifully and realistically brought to life by Ratna in the film as she plays Sidharth Malhotra and Fawad Khan’s mother. Well, hats off to this woman for getting it right every single time.

Reports about Gauri Shinde directing Deepika Padukone untrue?
Deepika Padukone is the reigning queen of Bollywood and she has been so for more than a couple of years now.

Deepika will soon be seen alongside Rishi Kapoor in the official Hindi remake of The Intern which starrer Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro. Not just that the actress also has Dharma productions’ next directed by Shakun Batra also starring Ananya Panday and Siddhant Chaturvedi in her kitty.
Latest reports around the actress suggested that the remake of the Intern might be directed by Gauri Shinde, however, sources close to Gauri Shinde said, “The news about Gauri Shinde directing Deepika Padukone in The Intern remake is not true. Gauri does not do remakes that is not her style. She always writes her own scripts and decides the way forward herself.” Well, we hope an official announcement about who’ll be directing the awaited film comes out soon. It will surely be a treat to watch Deepika and Rishi Kapoor coming together on the big screen, don’t you agree?
