KARACHI: He rose to fame overnight and left the entertainment industry even more hastily but for Arshad Khan aka chai wala (tea vendor) neither of the events was planned. They just happened because his stars wanted them to.
Reports are that the cat-eyed, Pakistan’s latest social media celebrity, has left the flashy entertainment industry after his family refused to accept his latest photo shoot and song with singer Muskan Jay.
“Arshad’s appearance in a recent photo shoot and Muskan Jay song Beparwai has upset his family and peers,” said chai wala’s manager.
He added that Arshad was under constant pressure to distance himself from the entertainment industry.
Arshad’d manager also hinted that he probably would go back to Islamabad and start working as a chai wala again.
The 18-year-old chai wala became Pakistan’s hottest celebrity when his photo went viral on the Internet.
Arshad Khan became an overnight sensation this week when a photographer’s Instagram shot of him working at his tea stall was shared tens of thousands of times.
