Zayn Malik has been through quite the career shake up recently.

The 55-year-old director shared a picture of herself with the singer on Tuesday, telling followers that Zayn will be going to see the new musical of her 2002 film.

"This lovely young man is coming to see @BendItMusical, I'm going to sneak him in. so happy to c him happy!" Gurinder tweeted.

The director recently revealed that she and Zayn had met up to discuss working together on a film project, as he has a background in acting.

"We've met and spoken. He trained as an actor first then became part of the band," Gurinder reportedly told Daily Mirror.

"So I think what he'll be doing is staying true to his heart – and that's all you can ever do."

However she admitted she doesn't have a role planned for him yet. "I don't have a part in mind for Zayn just yet but hopefully in the future."

Their discussions came just months after Zayn’s singer friend Ed Sheeran, 24, agreed to feature in a Bollywood film.
