“I was trying to get One Direction (to perform in India) but they did not have dates,” said Sunil Hamal, Director, JPR events, which is organising the tour along with Apar Mathur.
“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 a little confused between Liam Payne and Zayn,” he added.
After leaving One Direction, Zayn dropped his first solo single, Pillowtalk, in 2016. Zayn also made cover versions of Indian singer Kailash Kher’s hit numbers Teri deewani and Allah ke bande.
