Zayn Malik, best known for his music, feels that he can be an Oscar-winning actor. His claim comes after shooting a mini-film for his new single ‘Let Me’, which saw him foray into character portrayal. Singer Zayn Malik said that he’d be interested in doing some acting. “It’s always been something that I liked doing, even when I was growing up. I did a few school performances,” he said. “I’m not saying that I’m an Oscar-level actor right now, but I’m sure I can go to a few classes and learn things and pick it up,” the ‘Pillowtalk’ singer added. His comments have come after his former One Direction band member Harry Styles made a critically-acclaimed acting debut in smash-hit film ‘Dunkirk’. Styles also received a lot of praise for his performance in Christopher Nolan’s epic drama. Meanwhile, his contributions are being hailed as ‘solid and seamlessly blending into the ensemble.’ As a result, he’s now tipped to appear in other blockbusters scheduled for 2019. This means he could follow in the footsteps of other singers-turned-actors, including Will Smith, Jennifer Hudson, Mark Wahlberg and Cher. It seems like Zayn Malik’s break-up with Gigi Hadid took a toll on the him. Speaking of his latest single, the 25-year-old said that he wrote ‘Let Me’ about seven or eight months ago while he was dating Hadid. The 22-year old model was truly Zayn Malik’s inspiration and thus, he is not remorseful. Malik added, “We go through experiences so we have memories and stories and things to write down and contemplate and think about.” Published in Daily Times, April 17th 2018.
