We all know that when Ellen Degeneres pulled in Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Jared Leto, Julia Roberts, Kevin Spacey, Meryl Streep, Lupita Nyong'o and her brother into a selfie at the 2014 Oscar Awards show, that selfie went on to become the world's most re-tweeted and favorited selfie to date.

Who is "this kid"?

Before we tell you, you tell us if you recognized him (by leaving a comment below). For those who didn't, this kid is Zain Javaad, aka Zayn Malik, one of the 5 boys in the popular One Direction band from UK. However, last month it was announced that Zayn has decided to go his own way. The 22- year old British singer is progeny of a Pakistan- born father and a white English mother who converted to Islam, according to a recent article in BBC. Few facts about Zayn as per the same article- 

  1. Zayn has read the Koran three times.
  2. He almost didn't audition to be a part of X-factor, the TV series that shot him to fame and ultimately led to the creation of 'One Direction'. It was his mother who coaxed him to go and 'see what happens'. That was the seventh series of X-factor and Simon Cowell gets the credit of convincing him to continue after that. The rest as they say, is history.
  3. His mom, Trisha, worked as a halal chef in the kitchen of a local primary school, making meals for Muslim children. Zayn convinced her to give up her job and instead he puts her  wage into her bank. He has even bought an apartment for the family in Bradford, UK, where he was born.
We say ..

The 'One Direction' fans all over the world are certainly saddened at the prospect of Zayn's departure from the famous five boy band. Good decision or not, the news certainly has given him an identity of his own because now, people actually know who Zayn Malik is. The fact that King Khan's selfie with him has created history in India's social media world speaks volume of his popularity just as much as SRK's. Judging by how close Zayn is to his family, he is obviously a cool kid. And the lesser known fact, his Pakistan- roots probably lends an interesting 'desi' angle to story as well. Like says SRK, may Allah bless him.
