Pakistan’s hot ‘chai-wala’ turns model

Nothing stops you from living your destined life! An uneducated youngster from Pakistan, who hasn’t seen the world beyond his village, and has no clue as to what social media is, is now trending in the virtual world.

What more! 18-year-old Arshad Khan has landed a modelling contract. All because of his hot looks. The blue-eyed youngster, dubbed ‘chai-wala’ because he sells tea for a living at Islamabad’s Sunday Bazaar, cannot understand the sudden adulation, either.

Javeria Ali, a budding photographer, clicked his picture uploading it on Twitter on October 14.

For the young media graduate, it was just another post. But within hours the post went viral, with people across the borders drooling over his looks, changing his fate overnight. Today, she’s glad Khan is famous.

Fitin.pk, an online shopping site based in Islamabad, has already signed Khan for a modelling campaign.
