Zayn for ELLE India







  • On his sophomore album: “There’s definitely a lot of Urdu; some nice qawwali sounds. There might even be some bhangra vibes.”

  • Recorded 87 songs, only 10 will make it to the album.

  • On working with AR Rahman on one song: “It was interesting, because [my team] was talking to him first, saying, “Bollywood, Bollywood…” Then he came on Skype, and said, “There are a thousand different types of Bollywood. What do you mean?” I had to explain we wanted a more qawwali, sufi kind of sound, and he got it straight away.”

  • Confirms he recorded a song for a Bollywood film: “It’s one of the first songs I’ve sung in full Hindi, so it’s going to be cool to see what the response to that is.”

  • Says women on his family have always supported him. “With my father, he didn’t really get theatre studies too much, and didn’t ever come and see me at performances. But he’s slowly starting to get into it now that he sees my success.”
