Wondering where is he now?
Turns out Arshad has now opened his own cafe named ‘Cafe Chaiwala Rooftop’, in Islamabad and has become the talk of the internet once again.
Talking to Urdu News about the new venture, Arshad said, “Many people asked me to name my café as Arshad Khan and told me to change the current name. But I refused because ‘Chaiwala’ is my identity.”
Khan added that he focuses most of his time and attention on the café, but he also has two or three TV shows coming up. He does regret the fact that he did not complete his education but is grateful for his achievements.
Khan’s modern style tea stall serves 15-20 dishes along with tea, and several desi elements like kites, tables and chairs and paintings have been placed in and around the eatery.
