As the videos of music band ‘Coldplay’ gracing the Global Citizen concert in Mumbai go viral, the one where lead singer Chris Martin waving around the India flag has been the one that has caused quite a stir.
The video shows Martin grabbing the flag from the audience and waving it around as he sings on stage. According to Asian Age, Nawab Malik, National Congress Party leader, has accused the singer for disrespecting the Indian flag. “There is a video grab from ‘Coldplay’s’ concert in Mumbai, where the band’s lead singer is seen insulting the Indian flag,” Malik is reported stating.
The news has further gone on to add, that Malik, along with the BJP and Shiv Sena party leaders, want an apology from Martin for his acts.
This isn’t the first time a celebrity has been scrutinised for waving the Indain flag. Back in 2012 Bollywood’s own Shah Rukh Khan was accused for waving the flag upside down whilst celebrating the Indian Cricket team’s world cup win in 2011.
