There’s a good news for all Zayn Malik fans across India. The British-Pakistani singer will arrive in India for a multi-city tour in August. It’s been a long time since all the Indian fans have been longing for their favourite singer to perform in the country. “The global pop star will kick-start the tour from Mumbai on August 3 and then head to cities like Kolkata, Hyderabad, and Delhi. We are planning to organize his concert in Nepal too,” Vishal Pandey, Chief Operating Officer, JPR Events confirmed the news and told IANS.’

“I was trying to get One Direction (to perform in India) but they did not have dates,” said Sunil Hamal, Director, JPR events. JPR events is the company which is organising the tour along with Apar Mathur, owner of Blot Canvas PR.

“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,” Hamal mentioned.

Zayn Malik found fame on the 2010 series of ‘The X Factor’. After delivering hits like ‘What makes you beautiful’, ‘Little things’ and ‘Live while we’re young’ as part of One Direction, the pop star announced in 2015 that he was quitting the band to lead a normal life out of the spotlight. After quitting One Direction, Zayn delivered several hit numbers including Pillowtalk, Dusk Till Dawn, and Entertainer.

Earlier this year, Zayn Malik shared that he worked with music maestro A.R. Rahman on one song. The teen heartthrob also made cover versions of Indian singer Kailash Kher’s hit numbers “Teri deewani” and “Allah ke bande”.
