Everyone knows who Arshad pyaara chai wala Khan is. The (literally) blue-eyed boy was casually pouring garam garam chai into a pateela on an apparently ordinary Sunday morning and a picture of that moment captured by Jia Ali changed everything.
Clueless and an extremely innocent Arshad was suddenly bombarded with questions for which no ordinary man can ever be prepared for and in the midst of it all he made a statement that he’ll never work in the media as an actor or a model because that’s not what ghairatmand people do.
Little did he know that these words will become the center of much “controversy” later in his modeling career.
Following his recent black and white modeling shots in which the chai wala is dipping inside a pool made people realize that they do not forget and nor do they forgive. They very same people who shoved him into the spotlight and sung praises for him, started ridiculing and criticizing him for not keeping his word of following the ghiaratmand path.
Seeing how he’s an extremely simple guy (but seriously, what is the manager even there for?) he apologized publicly to everyone who was offended by his choice of work.
According to Express Tribune, his manager announced that Arshad will soon be returning to the dhaaba he belongs to and will return to his ordinary lifestyle.
Following Arshad’s apology to the public for his music video work, Express Tribune reported his manager saying that Arshad can no longer escape the pressure from his family to quit the world of entertainment and his shoot with Muskan Jay would be the end of this non-ghairatmand journey.
Here’s how people reacted to this shocking news

Uhh… WHAT IS THIS CONFUSION?
So, according to Dunya News:
Samaa TV says Arshad is making a comeback after swearing to his family he won’t do “bold scenes”
And according to Dawn News:
There was also this unverified account claiming to be Arshad, who made the following statement:
I guess the confusion won’t be cleared out until Arshad Khan himself will come out and speak to his fans in a video, instead of through “cousins” and managers.
