In March 2020 after returning from London, she attended few parties with Indian politicians and VIPs at Hotel Taj, Lucknow, against Government of India – Ministry of Health's home quarantine advisory against Coronavirus at the time. Subsequently, she was tested positive for Covid-19. A domino effect lead President of India to cancel his plans, and engagements indefinitely. A complaint was lodged against her for her negligence.
Kapoor was born on 21 August 1978 in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh. Her father, Rajeev Kapoor, is a businessman, and her mother, Poonam Kapoor, is a boutique owner. She was born and brought up in a Khatri family from Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh where she also studied music. At the age of 12, Kapoor started to study classical music under musician Pandit Ganesh Prasad Mishra from Varanasi and was accompanied by him to classical concerts around India. Kapoor participated in many music competitions at school in her childhood. At the age of 15, she did a stint with All India Radio and also accompanied bhajan singer Anup Jalota in his shows. She did her B.A. and then Masters in music from Bhatkhande Music Institute in Lucknow. She then moved to Mumbai to pursue her music career.
Kanika Kapoor married to Raj Chandok, an NRI businessman, in 1997 and moved to London with her husband, with whom she had three children. She separated from her husband in 2012 and moved back to her parents home in Lucknow. The couple divorced in 2012.
Kapoor was tested positive for COVID-19 during the COVID-19 pandemic on 20 March 2020. She returned to India from London on 9 March, whereupon she later threw a party for her family and friends in Lucknow. Her father, Rajiv Kapoor, stated she attended three parties, which Kanika Kapoor denied. Upon Kapoor testing positive for COVID-19, and updating about it on Twitter; former chief minister of Rajasthan Vasundhara Raje stated in a tweet that herself, and her son had met Kapoor at a party, and later went in a self imposed quarantine till their reports came back as negative.
The party in question was attended by several prominent personalities, and bureaucrats including former chief minister of Rajasthan Vasundhara Raje, her son – incumbent MP Dushyant Singh, and Uttar Pradesh's state minister of medical, and health Jai Pratap Singh.
Dushyant Singh later attended Parliament of India. As the party was attended by a few politicians, a domino effect lead to the quarantine of six members of parliament, the health minister of Uttar Pradesh Jai Pratap Singh, former chief minister of Rajasthan Vasundhara Raje, two top bureaucrats in the central government, three members of the legislative assembly of UP, and other bureaucratic elites went into self-quarantine on the same day when Kapoor made her test result public.
[...]when the singer was screened at the Lucknow airport on March 14, "high viral load was detected". She was advised home quarantine, but the advice was disregarded.
The complaint was filed under Sections 188, 269, and 270 of the Indian Penal Code. The CMO later admitted to lapses in his report which was used to file the case against the singer. He clarified that the singer was not screened at Amausi airport, Lucknow, and was actually advised to undertake a 14-day self-isolation as per government guidelines when she landed at Mumbai airport from the UK.
While Kapoor was denying attending any social gathering, except one small family gathering, video of her playing holi with many people, and photos from the party including political elites went viral. After returning from the UK, Kapoor has attended three parties in Lucknow, one in Kanpur and has been part of at least two other public gatherings. Kapoor has been facing severe criticism on Twitter and other internet platforms for her negligence, and contradictary statements.
She complained about the hospital facilities and later the hospital authorities stated that she didn't co-operate with the staff. The director of the hospital stated: "Kapoor has been provided with the best that is possible in a hospital. She must co-operate as a patient and not throw tantrums of a star [...] Utmost care is being taken but she must first start behaving as a patient and not a star." She received further massive criticism on internet for not co-operating with hospital staff, and for throwing tantrums. The test reports of 63 people out of around 300 that she interacted with, came out to be negative. On 24 March 2020, the second COVID-2019 test which was conducted due to the doubt created in the mind of her family members, came out to be positive. She tested positive for third time on 27 March. She was previously tested on 20, and 23 March. She was tested positive for the fifth consecutive time on 31 March. On 4 April, her sixth test came negative for coronavirus. As of 5 April, there have not been positive cases of the disease reported from the people who were in contact with Kapoor. Following the second negative report for COVID-19 she was discharged from the hospital on 6 April 2020. While being in the quarantine, she released a statement, stating that she was screened at Mumbai airport and didn't show any symptoms. Upon her arrival in Lucknow, there was no screening setup and was not screened. Upon showing symptoms, she got herself tested and announced it after her reports came out positive.
In 2012, Kapoor released the music video "Jugni Ji", featuring Dr. Zeus. The track was the remix version of the Pakistani Sufi song "Alif Allah", originally sung by Arif Lohar and Meesha Shafi at the third season of the musical series Coke Studio Pakistan in 2010. Upon the release, "Jugni Ji" went on to become one of the biggest singles of 2012 and Kapoor earned the Brit Asia TV Music Award for Best Single. By the success of "Jugni Ji", Meet Bros Anjjan asked Kapoor to sing the song "Baby Doll" for the film Ragini MMS 2 (2014), which marked her Bollywood singing debut. The song created hype over its release and topped the charts with winning Mirchi Music Awards for the "Number One Song of the Year" award. Kapoor was critically praised for her singing style and went on to win several awards, including the Filmfare Award for Best Female Playback Singer. The same year she collaborated again with Dr. Zeus along with Vishal-Shekhar for the song "Lovely" in Happy New Year which was picturised on Deepika Padukone. The soundtrack of the album also includes a Punjabi remix of the song titled "Kamlee". Both the songs "Lovely" and "Kamlee" received generally positive reviews and were proved to be a major success.
That same year, she participated in a concert tour across North America, entitled "SLAM! The Tour", in which she performed alongside Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone. Apart from concerts and tours, she has also been signed by an NGO for children, as their brand ambassador, where she promoted the cause of children's education. She also relaunched her own fashion brand "Kanika Kapoor: House of Chikankari" to help the female artisans in Lucknow and develop this art of embroidery and textile decoration.
In the year 2015, she collaborated again with Meet Bros Anjjan for the song "Chittiyaan Kalaiyaan" in Roy, which became a huge critical and commercial success and was the playback singer for Sunny Leone in the song "Desi Look" in the movie Ek Paheli Leela. The song was her last collaboration with Zeus and parted ways with him due to his false claim of being the producer and composer of the song "Baby Doll". She collaborated third time with Meet Bros Anjjan for the song "Nachan Farrate" for the movie All Is Well. She sang "Neendein Khul Jaati Hain" for the film Hate Story 3, collaborating fourth time with Meet Bros. She also sang a welcome song titled "Hello Namstey" for India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi when he attended a gathering at Wembley Stadium, London on 13 November 2015.
She regularly arranges and takes part in live shows and concerts. In 2016, she paired up with various composers including Amit Trivedi, Raghav Sachar. In an interview, she said that she will now concentrate more on Sufi and classical tracks. She will also release her songs as singles.
In 2016, she was made brand ambassador of Swiss Watch manufacturer 88 Rue du Rhone, an independent brand by Raymond Weil. In 2019, Kapoor was one of the judges of singing reality show The Voice (season 3).
