Beyonce has teamed up with her old pal Chris Martin and Coldplay for their new video for 'Hymn for the Weekend'.

The stunning video, shot in Mumbai, features Beyonce as a Bollywood star and may give a hint as to the kind of Super Bowl halftime performance we can expect from them.

Some have accused Beyonce, who appears in full Indian make-up and dress, of cultural appropriation since the video landed on Friday night.

However, the video is shot by an Indian director and also features popular Bollywood actress Sonam Kapur.
