Arshad Khan, a Pakistani tea seller is the new buzzword on the internet because of his good looks. As per a report in Dawn, the blue-eyed young man has been hired as a model by a fashion retail site fitin.pk for an undisclosed amount. With his drop dead gorgeous looks, he has managed to steal a million women’s hearts across the world after his photographs were posted on the net.
The 18 year old new internet sensation is from Kohat and used to sell tea at Itwar Bazaar in Islamabad. Arshad is also trending on Twitter as #ChaiWala. The young guy with an intense look has never been to school and is very happy with his achievement and said that he is interested in doing films and modelling. His maternal uncle is fully supporting him in his new endeavour.
Arshad’s life underwent a sea change when his photographs went viral on Instagram, and Facebook. He said that never in his wildest dreams did he think that the photographs, which were clicked by a photographer named Jiah Ali, would change his destiny.
Needless to say, for Arshad, the world is now his oyster. However, whether that brings him lasting fame and fortune is debatable as fads tend to fizzle out soon after they catch the fancy of the world. That is not saying it will happen, or not. However, in a region that is volatile, especially after PM Narendra Modi ordered the Indian Army to carry out surgical strikes across the LoC in POk, this is a welcome relief from the tension-filled news.
