Till yesterday, he was like any other tea-seller, but 18-year-old Arshad Khan’s life changed for good after a picture of this blue-eyed teen pouring tea in his hometown Islamabad took social media by storm. He got a makeover and now does modelling assignments. Wait.
Arshad shot to limelight after a picture clicked by photographer Jiah Ali went viral on the internet. The Instagram picture has generated more than 31,000 likes by the followers and the number goes on increasing. Even the youngster in limelight had told a prominent Pakistani channel to have been visited by 40-50 girls after the viral photo. Recently, Arshad was asked which actor he thinks he resembled.
Here came his quick reply: Shah Rukh Khan. Well, little did this ‘chaiwallah’ imagined that the superstar he looked up to would respond as well.
The 51-year-old superstar retweeted the picture and acknowledged Arshad’s gesture.
How sweet is this. Beauty lies in simplicity. https://t.co/QZbTMQN8Sj

Simplicity, eh! This is actually a huge compliment for Arshad coming from someone like SRK who has played a variety of roles in his 25-year-long acting career. Be it workaholic Surinder Sahni in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, an ambitious Raju in Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman or guy-next-door Sunil in Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa. Here are three non-glamorous roles which SRK played that won our hearts.
