The news of Malik’s casting came just a day after he shared a rare selfie on social media.
The former One Direction star, 29, showed off his pink-toned locks as he stared at the camera in awe in his first post since last month.
Before returning to Instagram, Zayn showed off his chest tattoos as he donned a gray knit cardigan worn open and completed his look with a chunky silver chain.
His long locks fell around his face as he looked into the camera as he stood in the blazing sun.
