If you thought that the trending #ChaiWala was a one-time wonder, you were wrong. Looks like Arshad Khan, the 18-year-old tea seller from Islamabad, is becoming more famous by the day.

Khan unknowingly became an overnight social media celebrity after an image of him posted by Pakistani photographer Jiah Ali on her Instagram account went viral.

The photo attracted over 28.1K likes on the original Instagram post - with girls commenting over Khan’s good looks, his blue eyes and innocent charm.

But for Khan, the story did not end with that one photo.

On Tuesday, Khan appeared on popular talk show, Good Morning Pakistan, on the ARY network , where he was given a makeover on-screen.

Result? Khan found his images going viral again, charming his fans with his new look.

Groomed and dressed by the network stylists, Khan was presented in many avatars. He first donned a stylish blue suit, and later changed into a traditional sherwani. The segment ended with Khan in a Pathani suit , a jacket and Pakol, a traditional Afghani cap.

He shyly thanked the audience for helping him become famous, politely saying, “Shukriya”. He couldn’t help but shy away when he was asked to pose with models.

And what’s more? He may have a career ahead in modelling, but the #ChaiWala ended the show by making some hot tea.
