Hair God Zayn Malik may be a hair-colour-changing king first, but let's admit: he's equally good in the 'do department too. While in the recent past, he's experimented with some major colour palettes, almost all of them have featured distinct hairstyles as well. And if you thought he was done, you were wrong.
As a matter of fact, Malik had been a little au naturel lately, sporting his natural hair colour with ample use of pomade, and always down for turning his top-fur into a playground. Once again, dabbling with a concept of global mop-colour trends, he gave us a shocking sight on his Instagram today:
Sun is shining , the weather is good ð´ð¶ð¸
A post shared by Zayn Malik (@zayn) on Mar 11, 2018 at 9:01am PDT
Here's the thing: the hair colour may not be very groundbreaking, but the 'do is almost reminding us of his One Direction days. Those days his Gingham checks had more visibility than his mane and when his hairstyle was perpetually almost the same. Besides just a light fade, he never turned to drastic grooming changes. Just a slight stubble to go with his scalp-garden and that's all.
A post shared by Zayn Malik (@zayn) on Feb 1, 2018 at 8:16pm PST
So, broken down, there are no defined boundaries with his style this time. Of course, since facial features call for flattery, there is a trace of a fade in here. But all summed up, there's a lot of mess in here, and just slight use of a texturing hair wax. Plus, absolutely no use of a bristle brush or comb. This is the result of the glorious use of his fingers alone.
And going by Zayn's recent past, however, this is no biggie, boys.
From winning our hearts as a band member in One Direction to going all solo, Zayn Malik's journey has been quite interesting and eventful.
The 25-year-old singer is very talented and never leaves his fans disappointed. And the massive success of his first single Pillowtalk and first album Mind of Mine is just an example of it.

Now the Singer is all gearing up for his second album and is leaving no stone unturned. Well, though he is quite a private person, much to his fans' delight lately, he has given us a sneak-peek of his work.
And we got to agree, we are looking forward to new album already.
He has been sharing videos of his jam sessions in which Zayn is seen covering some popular tracks like I Can't Make You Love Me by Adele and Stevie Wonder By Donell Jones. But what grabbed our attention was this particular one that literally left us thrilled.
Can't make you love me cover- zayn ð¶ðµð´♥ï¸

The song is none other than Kailash Kher's iconic song Teri Deewani, which often soothes our soul. Adding to it this time is Zyan's soothing voice and on point guitar skills. You listen to this one and we bet this will totally take you down the memory lane.
Check it out right now:

Looking at him, we just wonder how he just keeps getting better and better with every song.
Well, this isn't the first time Zayn has impressed his Indian fans. The singer has a deep liking for Bollywood movies and songs. Just this year he appeared on the cover of an Indian fashion magazine for the first time. He also shared how he loves Shah Rukh Khan's movies 'Devdas' and 'Kabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham'.
A post shared by Zayn Malik (@zayn) on Jan 28, 2018 at 5:58pm PST
On the work front, the singer is presently in Miami working hard for his new album and we bet it will be as amazing as the first one.
Zayn Malik is winning Indian hearts and how! First, he shared the fact that he is an ardent SRK fan and 'Devdas' is his all time favourite movie. He even shared the Bollywood connection that his family has and tweeted a picture of his grand father with Dilip Kumar. Yesterday, Zayn dropped a cover for Kailash Kher's 'Teri Deewani' and obviously, people loved it.

I just heard @zaynmalik singing #TeriDeewani and OMG. His voice is so powerful - I genuinely hope to see a collaboration between #ZaynMalik & @Kailashkher, 2 legends working on 1 song would be musical gold. I love the original song, now I'm so impressed by this cover! ððð»
— Anuj Radia (@TheAnujRadia) February 27, 2018
In fact, even Kailash Kher loved it and shared his thoughts with everyone.

Turns out, Zayn is a hard fan of the 'Sufi' singer and he even recorded a cover of 'Allah Ke Bande'.

Yet again, people loved the fact that he loved Kailash Kher as much as most Indian do and his covers has got everybody excited.

He's won probably every Indian heart on the internet right now and with this wonderful appreciation that has come his way, when his Bollywood song finally drops, it's going to be a super hit. We can safely assume that.
Celebrated singer Zayn Malik has shared some pretty big and exciting news for his Indian fans. In a recent interview with Elle India, Zayn revealed his big Bollywood plans. Apparently, he has already recorded his first Bollywood track!
A post shared by Zayn Malik (@zayn) on Jan 27, 2018 at 5:35pm PST
The movie's name wasn't revealed but this is a full Hindi number so it will be exciting. Also, for his new album, he is including a lot of Urdu in his music with some Bhangra vibes thrown in. Also, Zayn has collaborated with the maestro A.R Rahman for one of the songs in the album. Zayn is a Bollywood fan and has previously confessed his love for SRK and his 'Devdas', which is his favourite movie and he even forced his girlfriend Gigi to watch it.
A post shared by Zayn Malik (@zayn) on Jul 13, 2017 at 6:02am PDT
Interestingly, Zayn always thought Shah Rukh Khan was arrogant in real life until his chance encounter with him changed his perception about King Khan.

In fact, turns out that Zayn is not the only one who is bitten with the Bollywood bug. He recently shared a picture of his dad with Dilip Kumar, who we assume, is a big fan of the super star.

Now all we want to know is which movie is going to feature Zayn's song and when can we finally hear it!
If you are, or ever were a One Direction fan, the news of Zayn Malik suddenly leaving the band was probably one of the biggest shocks you would have ever gotten. But, that was what he thought was best for him and years later, it's being proved as the best thing for Indian fans as well.
As you all may have noticed, most of the international stars don't seem to ever have India on their maps and we never ever get to see a lot of our favourite artists perform in our country. One Direction sure as hell would never have come here for a concert, but when it comes to Zayn, it's different.
We all know he's a big Bollywood fan and also made headlines a few months ago for covering Hindi songs on his Instagram. Well, it was about time he finally made his way to the country and give his Indian fans a proper live performance in just a couple of months.
He will kick off his multi-city tour this August and will be having concerts at four different cities. Vishal Pandey, Chief Operating Officer, JPR Events confirmed the news and told IANS, “He will kick-start the tour from Mumbai on August 3 and then head to cities like Kolkata, Hyderabad, and Delhi. We are planning to organize his concert in Nepal too.”
Sunil Hamal, Director, JPR events, which is organising the tour along with Apar Mathur, owner of Blot Canvas PR, said, “I was trying to get One Direction (to perform in India) but they did not have dates.”
He added, “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 little confused between Liam Payne and Zayn.”
Well, personally I would much prefer to go and see Liam live but for now, yay for Zayn!
Over the years, Zayn Malik has rocked a lot of different hairstyles.
Like, a lot.
He obviously likes to experiment, and doesn't shy away from dyeing his hair also.
Now, he's back with a new hairdo, but this time, it doesn't involve any hair at all. He has gone and shaved all of his hair completely, like not a single strand of hair is left.
A post shared by Trisha Malikð (@trishamalik1069) on Sep 3, 2017 at 9:05am PDT
The 24-year-old British singer's mom, Trisha Malik revealed his new look on Instagram, by posting a picture posing with a VERY bald Zayn and his girlfriend, Gigi Hadid.
Comments from the picture range from “you look cute” to “WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR HAIR?” Well, at least, it seems like Gigi approves, judging by her smile in the picture.
This is probably the first time Zayn's hair has shocked people so much, with people mourning his long, dark, lustrous hair on Twitter, while also making fun of him, obviously.
I'm sorry but the old zayn's hair can't come to the phone right now? why? oh, cause it's dEAD! DOESNT EXIST ANYMORE pic.twitter.com/6obugvyhK1

An Indian fast bowler who had all the traits that made Pakistani fast bowlers a phenomenon, Zaheer Khan enthralled us all with his bowling might during his heydays, and after his retirement, he continues to be remembered as one of India's most-prolific bowlers of all time.
He swinged the new ball and reversed the old. He did well on flat subcontinent pitches and relished the helpful ones away. And, if that wasn't enough, Zaheer's ability to control all three balls - SG, Duke and Kookaburra - was just phenomenal. Often compared to Wasim Akram, Zak didn't quite have his skills, but mentally, the left-arm seamer was as good as the Pakistani great.
He knew how to get wickets at regular intervals. He also had an intuitive sense of timing before going for the kill. And, once a batsman showed him the slightest hint of a weakness, Zaheer preyed on it ruthlessly. That's probably the reason why he ended up claiming 311 scalps in Tests, 282 in ODIs and 17 in T20 Internationals.
So, on Saturday, when the former Indian speedster turned 39, we weren't really surprised to witness the fanfare on the social media as cricketers, fans and celebs all came together to pour in the wishes for his birthday.
Happy Birthday to one of India's greatest ever bowler and one of the sharpest cricketing brain, Gyaan Baba @ImZaheer #LastBachelorsBirthday pic.twitter.com/4EybZYwobb
— Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) October 7, 2017
But, amongst them all, social media king Virender Sehwag once again stole the show. Taking to Twitter, the 'Nawab of Najafgarh' wished Zak by tweeting: "Happy Birthday to one of India's greatest ever bowler and one of the sharpest cricketing brain, Gyaan Baba #LastBachelorsBirthday".
It was the witty hashtag in Sehwag's tweet that stood out from the rest, leaving everyone in splits. Zaheer, who got engaged to Sagarika Ghatge earlier this year, is set to get married to the 'Chak De! India' star on 27 November - which explains Sehwag's funny hashtag.
Apart from Sehwag, here's how twitterati wished Zaheer Khan on his 39th birthday:

Lovebirds Sagarika Ghatge and Zaheer Khan are already our favourite couples and we love how cute these two look together. The couple who got betrothed this April is all set to tie the wedding knot by the end of this year.

The news has already got their fans excited and we can't wait to see them dressed as the bride and groom. We bet the duo will look jaw-dropping on D-day!
Talking about the big day Sagrika revealed to the Mumbai Mirror, “It could be towards the year end or a little earlier. We have shortlisted a few days but are yet to zero in on D-day.”
A post shared by Sagarika Ghatge (@sagarikaghatge) on Jul 18, 2017 at 9:53am PDT
The couple are already enjoying their time together and living every moment fully. Lately, they have been travelling together from Jamaica to New York and Dubai and keep sharing various sneak-peeks of their vacation time with the fans as well.
“I have always enjoyed travelling and now it's even better because the most important person in your life is with you. Zaheer has travelled a lot too, but only to cricket venues. Now he's exploring the other side of the world not related to cricket,” shared the actress.

The duo tried their level best to not let anyone catch a hint of their relationship but then it ain't easy to get away from the paparazzi.
They have now dated for almost 2 years and since it is public knowledge now, Sagarika talks about her man every now and then, “Zaheer is so easy to be around and so grounded despite achieving so much. I have so much respect for him.”

For fans who wonder if she will still be part of B-town and pursue her career after marriage, she says, “Definitely, I'm just looking at doing some good work. Big or small, the medium doesn't matter. I did a Marathi film (Premachi Goshta in 2013) because it helped me grow as an actor. I'm guessing priorities will change after marriage but Zaheer is supportive of my decision knowing I love being on the sets.”
Well, let's see what the groom and bride look like on their big day!
Sagarika Ghatge and Zaheer Khan gave everyone in the glitzy world of sports and entertainment a major reason to get together and celebrate their wedding madness which went on for days. The extravaganza pictures gave us major party goals, and well, people are still hung-over from the celebrations.

The couple rocked their royal look and friends rejoiced this union. Their wedding was trending for over a week and everyone on the internet was a virtual part of the week long saga. However, seems like the two love birds know exactly how to use the best of social media and aesthetically be in the headlines, for all the good reasons obviously. The couple is currently honeymooning in the beautiful lap of Maldives and the pictures are stunning, to say the least.

You already know about the hype surrounding ‘Aquaman’, the Jason Momoa starrer DC action movie. Well, while the first trailer for the movie got the heat going, director Zack Snyder has just tweeted some behind the scenes footage from the movie. Jason Momoa can be seen swimming underwater towards another character in the scene. While the clip lasts for only about 6 seconds, it does showcase the amount of precision Snyder is putting into directing the movie.
Here’s what Synder tweeted.

Another character is still unknown but we are best guessing that it could be Orm, Aquaman’s half-brother who becomes the supervillain known as Ocean Master, and will be played by Patrick Wilson in the Aquaman solo film. Till then, we hope that the movie comes out soon!
