Are you among those who swear by their cup of coffee? Are you one among those who have pledged allegiance to the beverage and promised you will not switch your loyalty to chai, ever? We might just give you a reason to contemplate your decision. Confused? So, Jiah Ali, a photographer in Pakistan uploaded a picture of a chaiwala from Islamabad on Instagram, but little must she have known what she was in for. This guy, pouring out tea, ladies and gentlemen, is hands-down sending ripples across South Asia and beyond, thanks to his smoldering Persian looks.
He looks nothing less than a hot supermodel, with blue eyes and a brooding look, as captured by Ali in the picture. His high-fashion supermodel looks while pouring tea has got people talking on Twitter. The comments on the picture range from absolutely smitten, to people fervently wishing he gets modelling contracts now, to a difficulty in believing that he is in fact, a guy making tea, and not someone modelling for a tea brand!
But just for those still wondering, Ali has uploaded his photo with a caption giving away his whereabouts, just so you know, you can pack your bags and teleport yourself to Itwar bazaar (Peshawar Mor), where you will see him for real.
Here are some of the (many) reactions on Facebook that this chai wala from Pakistan garnered, who has managed to be one of the top talked about people on the Internet recently.
Some send in love from this side of the border too.
If you think that’s where the world’s obsession ended, you are mistaken. A Facebook page has even photoshopped his face and in no time, he was in dapper suits, has replaced Ranveer Singh in Ram Leela, flaunted Slaman khan’s chiselled body and what not! Titled ’14 shades of the chai wala’, here are the pictures of Internet’s favourite chaiwala photoshopped into different settings.
Looking at the widespread love that he is receiving, Ali went back to Itwaar bazaar to find him and tell him all about it. Also, she figured his name is Arshad Khan.
Khan’s first photo has garnered about 4,500 ‘likes’ on Instagram and is being shared widely on Facebook.
