- Mumbai, Kolkata, Hyderabad and Delhi are on his itinerary

"I was trying to get One Direction (to perform in India) but they did not have dates," Sunil Hamal, Director, JPR events, which is organising the tour, told IANS. "Zayn has a very good fan following here so, I thought why not Zayn. I am also in touch with (his former bandmate) Liam Payne. I was little confused between Liam Payne and Zayn," he added.
Zayn Malik, 25, quit One Direction in 2015. His first solo single Pillowtalk released in 2016. He also made the cover versions of Kailash Kher's hit songs Teri Deewaniand Allah Ke Bande. Zayn had earlier revealed that he collaborated with Oscar-winning musician A R Rahman for a song.
Months ago, Zayn Malik featured in headlines when an excerpt from his interview, in which he had said that Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan 'came across as arrogant in movies,' went viral. "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," he had told Elle India.
In 2015, the duo had taken this selfie at the Asian Awards.
