The blue-eyed Pakistani chaiwala wh0 broke the internet a year back with his mesmerising look is back in the news again.

The chaiwala is reportedly an Afghan national and not a native Pakistani. Pakistani news channel Geo TV has claimed that a source from National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) has revealed that Arshad Khan doesn’t have any legal documents.

Dr Omar Zhakilwal, Pakistan’s special envoy and Afghanistan Ambassador to Pakistan, took to Twitter to confirm the news that the ‘Pakistani Chaiwala’ is actually an Afghan national.

Sources even revealed that Arshad’s family came from Kandahar in Afghanistan and acquired Pakistani documents. When Arshad was denied a Pakistani CNIC (Computerised National ID Card) he used his celebrity status to get the passport issued.

Arshad shot to fame after photographer Jiah Ali shared his photo on her Instagram page in October 2016.
