A Helping Hand
In fact, Arshad Khan thought he was in trouble! He still didn’t know that he’d become a superstar until his friends finally clued him in. Fortunately, Jiah Ali – the photographer – was on hand to help him update people on social media about his life. She explained that he was both confused and overwhelmed by the attention.
Fitin Steps Up To The Plate
Then the Pakistani clothes company, Fitin, stepped up to the plate and offered Arshad his first modeling contract. He made his debut under the caption “Chai wala is no more chai wala, now he is fashion wala,” on the company’s website. Arshad now realized he had to step up his game too.
The Management Arrive
So Arshad Khan, once a humble tea seller, hired a management team. Their job was to take care of him and help him with his newfound status. One of the first things that they did was get him started on social media as well as enrolling him for English language lessons.
Good Morning Pakistan!
His next appearance was on “Good Morning Pakistan” the popular Pakistani breakfast show where he was introduced to the nation and was given the chance to explain how to make the perfect cup of tea. Then he was offered a makeover – let’s see how that turned out shall we?
Goodbye Chai Wala
The outcome of the makeover was incredible; all the traces of his humble chai wala background were gone and in their place was a young man who looked suave and cool in a suit. He also modeled a traditional Pakistani outfit during the makeover and looked completely at home in it.
