It seems like Zayn Malik is really getting serious about his acting career because he just met up with director Gurinder Chadha! She tweeted a selfie of them together, saying that the former One Direction singer was going to see rehearsals of her new Bend It Like Beckham musical.

Gurinder also wrote that she was “so happy” to see that he was happy. (And we have to admit, he does look pretty cute and joyous.)

This is the same director who spilled the news that he wants to try acting, so now we’re wondering if he’s looking to star in a musical. And you know what? We’re okay with that. It would be a waste for him not to use his beautiful voice in some capacity on stage.

Do you think that Zayn would ever be in a musical? Tell us in the comments!
