Coldplay's new video stars Beyoncé and Sonam Kapoor - Elle India


Coldplay’s new video stars Beyoncé and Sonam Kapoor

The video employs every Indian cliché in the book and yet it's stunning

January 30th, 2016

We’ve been pretty kicked about Coldplay and Beyoncé coming together – ever since the band teased a tiny clip on Instagram.

The band just released a video for their song ‘Hymn For The Weekend’ and it employs every Indian cliché in the book – kaleidoscopic visuals, levitating sadhus, henna tattoos and colour. Lots of colour. Sounds tiresome but it really isn’t. The band ended up with a pretty arresting video after all.

Plus, we get to see Beyoncé in an Abu Jani + Sandeep Khosla creation – sporting a fair amount of bling and those henna tattoos – and get a fleeting glimpse of Sonam Kapoor in a Mayyur Girotra ensemble too.
