The music video scene in India faded away a long time back, but internationally, music videos are still hot. And the good thing is that some of the biggest international musicians now feature Bollywood actresses in their music videos.
The latest Bollywood actress to sign a deal with an international musician is Jacqueline Fernandez. She will be seen in popular international rapper Pitbull’s new song (Yes the same guy with whom Priyanka Chopra has also worked earlier)!
And guess what? As per the grapevine, Kangana Ranaut was also competing for this spot, but the part went to Jacqueline.

Sonam Kapoor Compares Coldplay to The Beatles and Michael Jackson
Sonam Kapoor, who’s a good friend of Jacqueline, had earlier essayed a miniscule part in Coldplay’s ‘The Hymn Of The Weekend’, which also featured Beyonce. Hope Jacqueline gets more footage in the video and also the video does well in India.
Sonam Kapoor did a tiny role in Coldplay’s music video, and justified her decision by saying Coldplay is as big as the Beatles and Michael Jackson.
For those who’re not aware (especially those who’re totally into Bollywood songs), British rock band Coldpay recently filmed a music video in India ‘A Hymn For The Weekend’; the video had International star Beyonce and our own Sonam Kapoor.
Unfortunately, Sonam Kapoor had a minuscule part to play in the video; she comes towards the end of the song and is hardly seen in 2-3 shots. Obviously, her fans are disappointed, but Sonam Kapoor says she knew that her part would be very small.
And the only reason, she did that was because she’s a big fan of Coldplay and thinks that the band is as big big as the Beatles or Micheal Jackson.

However, I’m sure there are many who probably may not agree with Sonam’s statement, and apparently, even her father Anil Kapoor had no idea about Coldplay either.
“He asked me who they were and why was I doing this really tiny part. All I told him was, what if the Beatles or Michael Jackson asked him to do a cameo, would he say no,” said Sonam.

So is the Coldplay band really as big as the Beatles and Michael Jackson? We have our reservations; what do you think?
