A One Direction member may go into a very different direction than just the pursuits of a boyband.
According to various online sources, Zayn Malik is being offered about half a million dollars to record one song for an upcoming Bollywood movie.
The singer is reportedly in high demand with Indian film production bosses, and that they are preparing to offer him big bucks to sing and act in one of their flicks.
The 21-year-old is being wooed by bosses who believe his global appeal will bring plenty of excitement to a blockbuster soundtrack.
"One Direction has a huge following among the youth, especially in major cities," a Bollywood producer told The Mirror.
"Zayn Malik is very well-known in that circle and holds tremendous promise if given the right break in a Bollywood film."
It is reported that Mumbai-based producers would offer Malik up to £500,000 for just one song.
