“It’s f*cking Coldplay, dude”, Sonam Kapoor on her cameo in Coldplay’s video
People made fun of the three shots that Sonam Kapoor was, in Coldplay’s “Hymn For the Weekend” music video. A lot of them said that the video appropriates rather than us appreciating Indian culture, and the rest were making fun of Sonam’s cameo.
If you ask us, we totally loved her appearance in it and cannot deny the fact that she was looking like an incredibly beautiful dream. And it happens so that she has 0 fucks to give about what people have to say about it. Like in this interview for Gulf News, she said,
First of all, I am in a Chris Martin video and I am a huge fan of Coldplay…. And if somebody told me at 16 that I was going to be in a [Coldplay] video, I would go: “shut up”. So when Chris Martin’s agent told my agent that they really like [me] and they want [me] to do a cameo, my agent was like: “it’s just three shots.” But I was like “it’s f*cking Coldplay, dude.” I get VIP access to them forever. So on my birthday, I get to take all my friends for a concert. I get VIP access to their concerts forever and I am going to make them sing Yellow to me. This is good. When I was in high school, I listened to “Yellow” from Coldplay and “Wonderwall” from Oasis and I used to cry and wondered if anyone would sing me these songs to me. And there I am, doing this video. Everybody is going on about these three shots alone.
Well said, Sonam! We are totally with you on this.
