In an interview with Times of India, Kanika said, “I knew that my father would never agree to it. So initially I thought of pursuing it without his knowledge and wanted to hide from him. But this couldn’t have lasted for long. It was something that I could have never hidden from him as it would have come on TV had I not told him.”

She further added, “And it happened, I had shot for a music video without his knowledge and he saw it on TV and came to know about it. He was very angry and there was a lot of drama at home. My father asked me to leave my studies and said he will get me married as I was not listening to him. He asked me to return home.” Kanika also revealed that her relatives accused her of defaming them by choosing to be a part of the show business.
