Zayn Malik has found yet another Bollywood track to croon to. This time, it's Abbas Mastan's Race number, Allah Duhai Hai. The song, which so various versions since it's genesis has found another rendition, courtesy Zayn! The British pop star took to Instagram to share his version of Allah Duhai and quite frankly, it's not all that bad. Sure, his previous attempts to revamp Bollywood songs and put his own style hasn't been highly appreciated. But the Allah Duhai version is surely one that will catch on for its peppy beats and Zayn's disparate voice.
Plus, with the dubstep zing that they've added to the song, it will definitely upscale on the charts. As the 25-year-old gears up for the release of his second album, as a tease to his fans, Zayn has been releasing covers after covers to amp up the excitement for his album. Originally composed by Pritam for Abbas Mastan's 2008 thriller, Race, which later saw several variations by the time the franchise released its third part with Salman Khan, the essence of the track's origins remain intact and catchy. Perhaps Pritam might have something to say about Zayn's rendition of his original composition.
