Is Taufik Batisah secretly a Directioner? This and other tidbits from his Q&A
Ever wondered what ticks off Singapore Idol winner Taufik Batisah or what he thinks of UK boy band One Direction?
The charming #awakkatmane singer held an impromptu Twitter Q&A session with his 103,000 followers on Tuesday (June 16) and dished plenty of interesting tidbit about himself.
Is it possible that Taufik, 33, is — gasp! — a Directioner? Well, he thinks Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan are “cool” but we are not placing bets on catching him at a One Direction concert (read: wild teenage screamfest).
Singer today, film star tomorrow?
Taufik, who took on his first TV role this year in Suria telemovie Demi Adriana, will make his big screen debut as leading man Dr Dani in upcoming Malaysian film Dukun Doktor Dani.
Directed by actor Sabri Yunus, it also stars Malaysian artists Fasha Sandha and Khatijah Tan and is slated for release next year.
Who knows, Taufik might officially make his move across the Causeway, if the time is right.
One of Taufik’s hidden talents is baking. Seems like he can whip up a decent cheesecake or a chocolate red velvet cake. Or so he claims. We’d better check with his wife Sheena Akbal!
Not content with being one of Singapore’s most successful talents, Taufik has set his sights on global domination one day. Watch out, world.
He usually maintains a calm exterior, but there is one thing that will make him lose his cool. Rude waiters, it’s best you don’t cross paths with Taufik. Consider yourselves warned.
It’s the question on everyone’s minds — when can we expect to see a mini Taufik or Sheena? To excited fans, he only asks that you pray for him and his wife of two months when it comes to babies.
