A picture of this chai wala hailing from Islamabad is making rounds not just on Pakistani social media, but globally. Chances are, you must have seen women gushing over his good looks — if not, you’re definitely living under a rock.
Since the chai wala’s picture has been going viral, Express News embarked to find out more about the man in question and to everyone’s joy, managed to find him at his usual spot. When asked if he has an idea of how famous he is now, Arshad Khan humbly replied, “Yes, I am aware of my newly found fame and I am incredibly happy. My friends have been showing me pictures since this morning.”
When asked what star he resembles, Arshad adorably responded, “Shah Rukh Khan” to the chuckles of the crowd gathered around him.
Khan shared that he has been working at the tea stall for the past three months. He also said, “I have been told I have beautiful eyes by many girls but nothing ever happened. Since my picture has gone viral, I realise that I am famous now.”
He doesn’t remember who took his picture though but seems quite elated that he’s getting so much attention. Arshad shares he has 17 siblings and is an avid fan of Hollywood movies and wouldn’t mind working for one.
He also chanted ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ happily for the camera.
