A chai wala (Tea vendor) was usually making a tea in his shop when a photographer passing by took his pic and made him a star being featured on twitter, news channels, international news channels etc overnight.
His overnight fame has propelled many Pakistanis who are grumbling about his normal camera picture in the opposition to his DSLR Viral Picture. It is in no way a considerable fact. It is because, in the modelling where plastic surgeries and Botox are top priorities, he is a perfect in his looks, without professionally done photo shoot, without make up and without directions of how to look at camera. He did it all himself. Still, complains about his perceived-bad-looks are being heard.
As soon as, he became a sensation in the social media networks he was hired by fashion agency, taken interviews and came live on the national news channels. This is sheer his luck that took him to such height in less than 24 hours. It does not end here. Indian media, whose government is on journey of isolating us from the world, has praised this Chai Wala while referring how Indian girls are going gaga over his looks and rendering him more handsome than the limelight hunks of Bollywood. If relations with India were not marked by tensions, Bollywood directors must have finalized him for movies.
Social Media has become the most important platform for promotions and interactions of celebrity with their fans. Social media can be beneficial as well as harmful for a person’s reputation. Social media plays a vital role in Public Opinion formation now. Social media propaganda ends up being the most effective and influential. Social media, for example, has ruined the careers of many including Aamir Liaquat, Meera, Laila and many other Indian actors also whose leaked videos lowered their fame. It is being hoped that this Chai Wala’s overnight fame turns out to be in his good and bring about best times in his life.
This Chai Wala has reached a pinnacle of his career till now since his picture became viral. Personally, it astonishes how a picture captured through a camera has changed the fate of a poverty ridden guy who, despite of a thousands opportunities for education in the capital, makes tea in Itwar Bazaar and earns his living. All it can be said is that modelling is a venture and may he make the best decisions for himself in his career.
