In an interview, Kanika talked about her personal life, her marriage and her children. She had said, “I married (Raj) and moved to London when I was only 18 years old. I was a normal papad pickle housewife, I had three kids and was happy to play the role of a mother to them, then we got divorced.” Talking about the changes a woman undergoes from marriage, she had said, “Marriage exposed me to another level of fancy life and that kind of captured me. I was materialistic, egotistical, vain and filled with myself to the point of being borderline arrogant.”

In another interview, Kanika had said, “I was a very young wife, a young mother and then a very young singer mother. I saw the full circle of life only in my 20s. It was too expensive to live in London and raise three children alone.” Talking about a failed marriage and how she mustered up the courage to come out of it, she had said, “I didn’t fight. I went away. It was hard to go through a bad marriage, but most women go through bad marriages. She doesn’t talk about it but she can’t get out of it.

Recalling the time when she was on her way to end her life, she said, “This is when you have no money, are going through a bad divorce and lawyers are pushing you to the limit. Huh. In addition, you have three children who have been kicked out of school because you have not paid the fees. Then you fall ill. You hit low and realize there is nothing left. But at that time I got a lot of support from my mother, my brother and some friends.
