Rami Malek and Zayn Malik are both talented in their profession. Rami is an American actor who has won multiple awards. On the contrary, Zayn is a British singer.

Zayn came to the spotlight after his performance on the British music competition television series The X Factor in 2010. Malik was invited back into the competition after being eliminated to form the five-piece boy band One Direction, which became one of the best-selling boy bands of all time.

In March 2015, he stepped down from the band and secured a solo recording contract with RCA Records. With his debut song, Pillowtalk, and album, Malik became the first British male artist to debut at number one in both the U.K. & the U.S.

Malek and Malik are not related by any means. They share a similar surname that happens to be pronounced the same, but the spellings are different.

Three years ago, Malek was in the Wired autocomplete interview where he had to answer Google’s most searched questions about himself. In the interview, there was a question if Rami was related to Zayn Malik. For which he answered in a sarcastic way stating Zayn was his cousin, and they spelled it wrong. 

People loved the joke and even went to Twitter to joke about it. However, though he was joking, they are not at all related. Malek is of Egyptian descent, whereas Malik comes from Pakistani descent. To make things clear, they have not even met each other.
