Earlier Malik did a cover for Kailash Kher’s ultimate love ballad, Teri Deewani, and unfortunately received a lot of backlash for it. However, Zayn is not the one to lose hope and he came back at it with Allah Kay Banday as well.

The Singer cum lyricist cum composer Kailash Kher didn’t even know who Zayn Malik was until this Saturday, when Zayn, a huge pop icon in the West and the former  vocalist of One Direction band, posted a cover version of Kailash’s song Teri Deewani on his own Instagram account. The number was sufi-style which was released in 2006, and it is one of biggest hits, from Kailash’s album. “I didn’t even know who he was until someone sent me the video saying, ‘Look, who sang your song’. I was like, ‘Kaun hai bhai?’ And then I went on to his Instagram [account], and saw that he has covered the song, and he has over 27 million followers. That’s when I learnt about him and came to know that he is a big pop star in the West, who is a huge icon.” Kailash told to Hindustan

He further added, “For Zayn Malik, I would suggest… we have our digital academy (Kailash Kher Academy of Learning Arts) coming up soon, where there will be a course dedicated to all our compositions, which include Teri Deewani and other superhits… [so] to know and learn the correct codes and nuances. It will help him improve his skills on such songs,”

Zayn Malik is an amazing singer who has a number of  hits including  Dusk Till Dawn, Pillowtalk and I Don’t Wanna Live Forever to his credit. However, classical and qawaali are not everyone’s cup of tea and hope Zayn Malik takes the hint and starts practicing soon. Because yes, we’d love a hot qawal with his own originals!
