Time and again, global pop star Zayn Malik has shown his obsession for Bollywood. Starting from his admiration for Shah Rukh Khan to making his girlfriend, Gigi Hadid watch his favourite Bollywood film, Devdas, Zayn is unstoppable when it comes to portraying his love for Bollywood.
Today, just when we were busy working on our office desks, the former One Direction performer shared a throwback picture on his Instagram account, and it made his Indian fans really happy. In the vintage photo, Zayn Malik’s dad is posing with legendary Bollywood actor Dilip Kumar.
Zayn captioned the picture on Instagram stating, "Abu with Dilip Kumar". Going by the photo, it seems, the photograph is all cracked and is evident Zayn might have fished it out from somewhere.
On a related note, Zayn Malik has shared some pretty big and exciting news for his Indian fans. In a recent interview with Elle India, Zayn revealed his big Bollywood plans. Apparently, he has already recorded his first Hindi song in Bollywood that is expected to have an Arabian influence. Zayn said, “It’s one of the first songs I’ve sung in full Hindi, so it’s going to be cool to see what the response is.”
He gave some inside details about his second album after Mind of Mine. "There’s definitely a lot of Urdu; some nice qawwali sounds. There might even be some bhangra vibes. I have worked with AR Rahman on one song," Zayn confirmed.
The Dusk Till Dawn singer has also graced the cover of the February edition of Elle India magazine. Flaunting his new mushroom-cut hairstyle, Zayn looks his casual best on the cover in a Tommy cricket jumper. This is the first time that the International pop sensation has featured on the cover of an Indian magazine.
Zayn, who is a huge fan of King Khan in a recent interview revealed, “I personally wasn’t a huge fan until I met him. I realised how humble he is. Really showed a different side to him. He always came across as slightly arrogant in the movies to me, but when I met him in real life, he was so nice. He just completely changed my opinion of him.”
