“My agent was like,’It’s just three shots’. But I was like it’s f*cking coldplay dude!”
As you know Coldplay’s latest single “hymn for the weekend” has become quite famous on social media. Many people were making fun/criticising Sonam Kapoor for her 5 second appearance in the video.
This is what Sonam had to say about them in an interview to Gulf News-
“First of all, I am in a Chris Martin video and I am a huge fan of Coldplay. When I was in high school, I grew up [listening to] Oasis, Coldplay and U2. And if somebody told me at 16 that I was going to be in a video, I would go: ‘shut up’,” she said.
“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’.”“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,” she added
“But I was like it’s f*cking Coldplay, dude. I get VIP access to them forever,” Sonam said.
The actor is seen wearing a traditional lehenga choli and jewelry in the video.
