Islamabad: A tea-seller named Arshad Khan, who broke the internet thanks to his intense blue eyes, has now bagged a modelling deal with a fashion portal here.

Retail site fitin.pk has signed on Arshad as a model for an undisclosed amount and his first shoot is already out, reported Dawn.

Arshad, 18, hails from Kohat and has been making chai at Itwar Bazaar (Sunday Bazaar) in Islamabad for three months now.

He has never been to school. He became an internet sensation after a local photographer
posted his picture on social media and the story was picked up by several media organisations.

The youngster is very happy about his newfound fame. He says that he'll definitely model and act in films if he gets the chance.

Arshad's maternal uncle agreed and said that if he gets any film or modelling offers, he will fully support him and stand by his side.
