While there are no confirmations around why Neha Kakkar chose to be absent from the show, pictures of the songstress on Instagram show that she is travelling with her husband Rohanpreet Singh.

Neha shared a selfie that she tested negative for coronavirus. "Right after getting our Covid negative reports." "Khushi Dekh Rahe Hain Aap," she wrote.

Recently, "Indian Idol 12" host Aditya Narayan recovered from Covid-19 and re-joined the music reality show.

The singer-anchor was in quarantine for two weeks.

Last month, Neha said that she loves creating content and interacting with fans on social media. The signer along with her husband Rohanpreet Singh will create short content for a social media platform.
