Bollywood fashionista Sonam Kapoor is a newsmaker, and we all know it. Anil Kapoor’s doting daughter grabbed the eyeballs for featuring in a ‘Coldplay’ video recently. However, what disappointed her fans was her blink-and-miss appearance in the song.
‘Hymn For The Weekend’ was much awaited and when the fans saw Sonam barely for a few seconds in the video—they were in for a ride. However, the actress feels otherwise.
Recently, she was quoted as saying: “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’.”
Though the ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ star’s agent was not too pleased about the brevity of her appearance in the video, Sonam didn’t care and told him, “But I was like it’s 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,” said Kapoor.
Along with her agent, Sonam’s father Bollywood superstar Anil Kapoor also didn’t understand what the fuss was about but her fancy for Coldplay made her convince him.
