Holi Special: What YELLOW means in the movies

Jahnavi Patel tells us how Bollywood gives colours a whole new meaning.

When Coldplay sang Yellow, they probably knew the colour played an important role in Bollywood.

It has given us #FashionGoals, ways to express love, and, of course, how to kiss behind lovely sunflowers!

We saw how GREEN, RED and PINK are celebrated in the movies.

In our special Holi series, let’s see what part YELLOW plays in the movies.
