A day after Bollywood singer Kanika Kapoor was tested positive, her selfie with Prime Minister Narendra Modi has surfaced on the internet with a claim that it is a recent picture.
The caption of the picture read: “This is Our PM Proudly Posing With Singer Kanika Kapur Who is reported to be Corona Virus Positive.”
NewsMobile fact-checked the above picture and found that the picture in circulation is old.
On putting the picture through Reverse Image Search, we found that same picture being shared by Kanika Kapoor herself on her verified Twiter handle (@TheKanikakapoor) on September 18, 2018, wishing PM Modi on for his birthday.

Hence, this proves that the picture is almost two years old and it was clicked much before Kanika was contracted by Coronavirus.
