It was like every fan girl’s dream come true, when Shah Rukh Khan and former One Direction member Zayn Malik, met each other and took a selfie back in 2015. It became the most retweeted and liked Indian post on Twitter. Though Mailk hasn’t always been a fan, but that soon changed once meeting the ‘Raees’ (2017) actor.
Reported on Bollywood Life, Malik shares in an interview with Elle India how he thought the King of romance was a bit arrogant, “I personally wasn’t a huge fan until I met him. I realised 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.”
And Khan also expressed his fondness of the singer, when asked during a #AskSrk session on Twitter. A fan tweeted and asked what he thought of Malik, to which the ‘Dear Zindagi’ (2017) actor replied, “He is extremely sweet. Made me a huge hit with my kids by doing a pic with me.” Suhana and Aryan Khan are huge fans of Malik.
After becoming a fan, Malik who is in a relationship with model Gigi Hadid, even went to the extent of watching ‘Devdas’ (2002) with her.
