DJ Diplo wears an ‘Aishwarya Rai’ t-shirt at Lollapalooza in Mumbai; Netizens said “I think it’s cool…trying to pander to the audience.
DJ Diplo on Sunday gave a powerful 90-minute performance of the latest hits and evergreen songs on the final day of the global musical festival Lollapalooza in Mumbai. Despite the outstanding performance what also caught the fan’s attention was how Diplo wore a black sweatshirt with former Miss World and actor Aishwarya Rai’s name and picture printed on it.
A fan wrote, “I need that shirt.” Another called it “Vocal for local Abhiyan (mission).” A Reddit user said, “Westerners trying to appeal to Indian masses.” One more comment read: “I think it’s cool that he’s wearing it to a Mumbai show though even if he’s just trying to pander to the audience. If I was an artist I’d probably do the same if I was travelling to different countries for shows.”
Meanwhile Rock band The Strokes and Indian rapper Divine also enthralled the audience on Sunday. The Strokes performed their evergreen songs like Last Nite and Take It or Leave It. Julian Casablancas, the lead singer of the rock band, said during their time on stage, “I watched Pathaan last night and I am very inspired.”
