A discovery of Islamabad-based photographer Javeria Ali, this chaiwala — spotted at a tea stall in Islamabad’s Sunday Bazaar — has girls ready for rishtas and talent management firms on the look-out for their next big star.
“I didn’t expect [such a fuss] at all,” shares the photographer Javeria. “It’s very surprising.”
“I took the picture during a photowalk at [Islamabad’s] Itwar Bazaar and put it up as a regular post on Instagram and it didn’t go viral until four or five days later,” she tells us.
The real name of internet fame holder chaiwala is Arshad Khan, who works at Sunday Bazaar (Peshawar Chowk) near vegetable area.
Meanwhile, he said that people have taken more than 150 pictures with him so far.
