Latest internet sensation, the blue-eyed chai wala has no plans of working in movies, reports Dawn News. Arshad Khan became the overnight internet celebrity when a girl’s Instagram post of his picture went viral.


The extremely shy Arshad has been baffled, exhilarated and flattered with all the media attention but does not want to pursue an acting career. While talking to the media Khan said, “It was all very baffling.”

He belongs to a core Pashtun family, living in Mardan, he is one of 18 siblings-. Having a lighter complexion and colored eyes, he is a living, gorgeous proof of their cultural infusion.

While talking to Express Tribune, Khan said,

“I have not thought about (acting in) movies, because it’s not been done by anyone in our family,” he said.

It seems that the simple Pashtun boy feels a little uncomfortable with all the glitz and glamorous of the entertainment industry. He has already been endorsed by an online shopping portal, and has gotten a modeling sponsorship as well.

This is what he had to say about acting in films:

“Acting is not honorable work. Pashtuns always look for work that is honorable …. If I can find some clean, honorable work, I will certainly do it.”
