She was not just the most searched female celebrity, she was the most searched celebrity among both male and female celebs in lockdown. .
Vardan Gupta, a software engineer from Gurgaon, says, ‘I only knew Kanika Kapoor by name. I knew she was a popular singer but nothing more than that. But after his test came positive, I wanted to find out about him and in a week many news came to know about him.
Significantly, Kanika was the first Indian celeb to perform a positive test for the virus and hence her curiosity about her case was high. Rajni Singh, a resident of West Delhi, said, ‘I actually kept a Google alert of his name so that I would get frequent updates about him.’
