Baby Doll's fame singer Kanika Kapoor grabbed all headlines after she confirmed that she was tested positive for coronavirus. Kanika, who recently returned from London, reportedly attended a high profile party in Lucknow. She faced a lot of flak on social media after the reports of her attending parties hit the internet. However, she also got support from some of her industry friends including Sonam Kapoor who tweeted, 'Hey guys @TheKanikakapoor came back on the 9th. India was not self-isolating but playing Holi..'. Sonam's tweet didn't go down well with the netizens who trolled her on social media.
