Zayn Malik about Shahrukh Khan
Last year, Zayn Malik’s selfie with Shahrukh Khan had become viral on Twitter. In his interview with the Indian fashion magazine, the British Pakistani singer also talked about how different he thought of SRK before meeting him.
“I personally was not a huge fan until I met him. I realized 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”.
