Why This Video by Coldplay, Beyonce and Sonam Kapoor Should Not Have Any Controversy

By  | 

Let us first watch this video Hymn For The Weekend by Coldplay. An orgy of colors and great music with familiar Indian background is hallmark of this video.

We have become one of the most easily offended people in the recent past or we have figured out more and more ways to express that we are offended. Let me tackle each argument one by one.

Cultural Appropriation
So what’s wrong with that. We Indians are the first ones to trace Indian roots of every global CEO. If someone else uses some colorful backgrounds from our country, what can be wrong with that.

Small Duration of Sonam Kapoor Appearance
Come on. Just because we are a billion people does not mean that we need to be all over the place in the video. And when Sonam Kapoor herself has expressed her happiness, who are we to challenge that.

Too Much Holi
Don’t we love Holi as a festival. We might not do that all through the year but showing it so aesthetically is something we should feel great about. What about Indian movies showing only gardens from Europe. Haven’t heard of anyone getting bothered by that.

And while we are on the topic, let us have a look at Coldplay’s other video related to China featuring Rihanna – Princess of China
