When Javeriah Ali uploaded the picture of the chaiwala from Islamabad’s Sunday Bazaar, we did not know much about the person behind the mysteriously handsome face.
With latest news constantly surfacing about him, Samaa has complied a list of things we have been able to gather about the blue-eyed tea vendour-turned model:
His name is Arshad Khan and he is only 18 years old.
He hails from the city of Mardan in Pakistan’s Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province.
He is one of 18 siblings, his father having married twice.
He has been working at Islamabad’s weekly Itwar (Sunday) bazaar for the past 4 years.
Prior to selling tea he was selling fruit andÂ couldn’t go to school because his family couldn’t afford to pay for his education.
He has his own Twitter account now.
He is now modelling for online clothes store Fitin.pk.
He has been offered a role in Syed Noor’s next venture.
His first picture debuted on Instagram.
With the release of his photograph and the ensuing craze, about 30-40 girls turn up to take selfies with the new heartthrob.
He is single. —SAMAA
