For those who’ve been living under a rock, Zayn Malik recently made his first public attempt at singing Hindi songs.
The former One Direction member who is going to make his Bollywood debut soon, shared two videos of himself crooning to Kailash Kher’s Teri Deewani and Allah Ke Bande on Instagram.
One after another.
While these videos didn’t go down too well with the Indian fans…
Someone should pour some acid in their ears instead of listening #ZaynMalik cover #TeriDeewani that would be much better than listening to this crap.— Zain (@Zainbintariq248) February 27, 2018
#ZaynMalik just massacred #KailashKher’s ‘Teri Deewani’ – one of my all-time favourite songs… https://t.co/eDp5VQ2tnn— Maliha Rehman (@MalihaRehman) February 27, 2018
… it got noticed and appreciated by Kailash Kher.

Taken by surprise, Kher invited Zayn to jam with him in future, but the offer had one condition.
He told IANS,
“If Zayn is a real fan of Kailasa (Kailash’s band), we have our digital academy coming up. There will be a course dedicated to all our compositions, including Teri Deewani and all our superhits. To know the correct notes and nuances, he can join (the academy) and enroll himself. It will help him to improve his skills. Then we can jam together in future.”
