The story began in July 2015 when Coldplay band’s frontman Chris Martin came to India with actress Freida Pinto on behalf of the NGO Global Citizen. Martin and Pinto met people from economically disadvantaged backgrounds and visited slums. They also had a session with government officials, NGO workers and the Oxfam Indian team.
Thereafter, Chris Martin hung out with Vishal Dadlani and All India Bakchod Team, rocked at Delhi and then flew home.
