A few weeks back, Coldplay performed for the first time in India. The British band was performing for a charitable cause at the Global Citizen India Festival. The concert was held in Mumbai and the whole world was mesmerised by their fantastic act. The crowd also featured prominent Bollywood celebrities like Shah Rukh Khan, Ranveer Singh, Sonakshi Sinha, Shraddha Kapoor, Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Katrina Kaif and many others. While a few of these stars performed at the concert, a few spoke about the different causes associated with the Global Citizen India Festival. Katrina Kaif and Varun Dhawan were supposed to do that too but couldn’t manage to share stage with the singer.
We had revealed to you earlier that Katrina was supposed to either perform an act or speak about a cause. But coz she arrived late, Kat missed the chance. A source revealed to us EXCLUSIVELY, “Katrina Kaif was supposed to talk about a certain cause on the stage a few hours before Coldplay’s performance. But she arrived late at the venue and her slot was given away. The Global Citizen India Festival was a big event and it had to run on time to finish before the deadline (10.30 pm). When Katrina didn’t arrive during her slot, the organisers were forced to move on to the next artiste.” ALSO READ – Coldplay concert: 7 highlights featuring Shah Rukh Khan, Sachin Tendulkar and Jay Z that you cannot afford to miss – watch videos
But she wasn’t the only one. Varun Dhawan was also supposed to perform and speak about a cause. But he too could not make it on time. And hence, Varun and Katrina missed out on sharing the same stage as Coldplay. Anyway, coming back to the concert. The NGO behind the programme – Global Citizen works towards the eradication of poverty, illiteracy and much more. People had to volunteer to take up these causes and help better India. In return, they were given free tickets to the Coldplay concert. Cool na? ALSO READ – Ranveer Singh danced away with girlfriend Deepika Padukone’s this rival during the Coldplay concert – watch video
