The popular British rock band, Coldplay has something in big in store for the Indian fans. After an impromptu performance at Hauz Khas last July, Coldplay later visited Mumbai to shoot the music video for their new single, "Hymn for The Weekend" in October.  Coldplay's Chris Martin had the Indian social media go in a tizzy  when accompanied by music composer Vishal Dadlani, actress Freida Pinto and members of AIB, he turned up the Summer House cafe and belted out a few of the band's hits, includingParadise and Viva La Vida.

And now, there’s a sensational bit. According to a popular daily,  Sonam Kapoor has done a cameo in the song, which is the second single from the band's seventh album, A Head Full of Dreams. When contacted, the elated actress confirmed the news, "I love Coldplay's music and so does the world. It was a huge honour to be a part of the video. It's a great concept and I had a lot of fun shooting for it."  The actress plays a mystical muse in the video directed by Ben Mor. "Sonam shot for a day last October at the Golfa Devi Temple in Worli and the Vasai fort," informed a source close to the actress. The video also features American pop diva Beyonce, who has also lent her vocals to the track.

The single is a follow-up to the album's first number, "Adventure of a lifetime," which became the band's 21st UK Top 40 hit and stayed in the top 10 for six weeks.  Sonam's sister, Rhea Kapoor, who usually styles her looks conceptualized her appearance for this video too. "They zeroed in on a desi look with Sonam in a ghagra choli and wearing the traditional mang tika and a nose ring," added the source.

Excited to see Sonam and Beyonce groove to Coldplay’s music?

Seriously a small time 3 second part in a music video is not a big deal at all. Don't know why they release such nonsense better for her to have let this go unnoticed

I am happy for Sonam, no need to bring DP and PC here. Let Sonam have her moment please - from a DP fan.

AMAZING! She's so beautiful, so the part of a mystical muse works. Yay Sonam!!

wow! everyone is crossing over.. certainly good news for Cinema.

Finally officially confirmed!! I need the video to relee soon :-)

thats some news, was getting sick and tired of hearing lame stories of DP and PC lately.

Better than desperika!!!

Para.. Para.. Paradise :)

Somehow I don't think that she will fit. But lets see.

Cameo in a album song.lol....dat also only ikaun sonam can do..i think hollywood people dont knw dat even bollywood people dont ask sonam to do special song for dem..i just pray dey dont ask her to do two thumkas wearing ghagra choli an lipsyncing beyonce

Why is not she trying for Hollywood movies. Unlike Deepika she can atleast speak proper English.

cos she doesn't have an international look like Deepika. for all her style quotient, she's got a very Punju behenji face

Bcz dey need actress who can act and dnt speak english like k.g class kid wid dat awful and artificial kid accent

Well...hollywood people care more about talent den fashion ..
First let sonam to prove herself as an actor in bollywood...bcz i think it wd be insult for india if she exposes her talentless talent in hollywood movie..

i thought she was auditioning for hollywood films

sonam kapoor will surely rock!yayyyy

Thank god it's not DP or PC

oh no no no. i like beyonce and coldplay. sonam does not deserve to be within a mile of them. why why why... who gets her these gigs??

oh no no no. i like beyonce and coldplay. sonam does not deserve within a mile of them. why why why... who gets her these gigs??

the lines between bollywood and the west is blurring
