Remember the blue-eyed Pakistani ‘chaiwala’ who had become an overnight social media sensation for his good looks and the colour of his eyes? He has now opened his own cafe in Islamabad.
Several pictures of Arshad Khan has gone viral after they were clicked and shared by photographer Jiah Ali. Following the fame, he had even bagged a modelling contract.
Named ‘Cafe Chaiwala Rooftop’, Khan, in an interview, explains the reason behind the unique name and how he identifies with it. “A lot of people have told me to remove ‘chaiwala’ from the name, however, I refused because this is my identity,” he said.
