Less known things about the heartthrob!
Zayn Malik, born in Bradford, England on this day, 12th of January in 1993 celebrates his 24th birthday, leaving behind a long trail of work and fame and continuing his journey on to the next level.
He started off trying as a solo star in X Factor but couldn't make it to the show, but that was just the beginning of a long journey as he was invited to join a very prominent English boy band.
He added Zayn Malik to 'One Direction' later after his rejection.
'One Direction', the no-instrument band was totalled with five members when he joined. They later went on to give their greatest hit in 2012 and also grabbed three MTV Video Music Awards that September. Zayn later left the band in March 2015 after five years of working together.
Being the hot one among the band members, he was bound to have some action on that front which takes us to 2010, when he started dating X Factor contestant Rebecca.
Well, the girl does have a charm about her, and he went in engagement with her for two years until 2015, when they broke up.
And hell, she is hot and a famous model, mainly covering fitness modelling and sports illustrations.
Zayn Malik boasts more than 17 million followers even though he lost more than 100,000 followers, mainly the 'One Direction' fans after he left the band, but his organic popularity has far surpassed it.
