British-Pakistani singer Zayn Malik will be in India for a multi-city tour in August.
The former One Direction band member recorded his first song for a Bollywood movie earlier this year and shared that he also worked with music maestro AR Rahman on one song.
“Zayn will kick-start the tour from Mumbai on August 3 and then head to cities like Kolkata, Hyderabad and Delhi. We are planning to organise his concert in Nepal too,” Vishal Pandey, Chief Operating Officer.
Sunil Hamal, who is director of JPR events which is organising the tour along with Apar Mathur, owner of Blot Canvas PR, said, “I was trying to get One Direction (to perform in India), but they did not have dates,.”
“Zayn has a very good fan following here so, I thought why not Zayn. ” he added.
Zayn, who quit One Direction in 2015 to lead a ‘normal’ life out of the spotlight, dropped his first solo single, Pillowtalk, in 2016.
The British-Pakistani singer has also made cover versions of some of Indian singer Kailash Kher’s hit numbers. Zayn Malik has a huge following in the South Asian community and is a proud memeber of his Yorkshire roots.
