Back in October, Pakistani photographer Jiah Alia took a pic of Arshad Khan, a chai wala with blue eyes. While the photo is a great one, showing off Arshad’s good looks, Jiah could have hardly predicted that she was about to launch him into internet fame. After Arshad became an online sensation and even walked the ramp for a bridal couture brand, he has now gone on to star in a music video. The song titled Chaiwala is, as the name suggests, about Arshad’s rise to fame on social media. The song, sung by rapper SID (Mr Rapper), features the 18-year-old chai wala, who’s dressed in a snazzy black suit, dancing in the background.
Other scenes show both men and women getting blown away by Arshad’s good looks and fan girls even taking pictures with him, according to a report in DNA. Whether the lyrics of the song are somewhat demeaning is debatable, but Arshad seems to be enjoying himself in the video. The video, which was shared on the official Facebook page of the rapper, was released yesterday. Since then, it has gotten over 300,000 views and over 500 likes. The rapper shared another post about the song, writing, “The most trending topic of social sites yes that’s my #ChaiWala song. Thanks for making my song viral. loving the response so far thanks guys for making it the way i wanted it to be.” The song’s teaser was released last week.
