LONDON: Singer Zayn Malik 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.
Malik said that he is interested in acting. “It’s always been something that I liked doing, even when I was growing up. I did a few school performances,” Malik told a Manchester radio station.
“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 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 received a lot of praise for his performance in Christopher Nolan’s epic drama.
It seems like Malik’s break-up with Gigi Hadid has taken a toll on him. Speaking of his latest single, the 25-year-old told Ryan Seacrest that he wrote Let Me about seven or eight months ago while he was dating Hadid.
The 22-year old model was truly 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,” he said.
Post his breakup, Zayn also wiped clean his Instagram account.
