It all started when Twitter user Sakshi Khurana posted a clip from the 18-year-old social media star’s interview, where he says he resembles actor Shah Rukh Khan.

The video was shared multiple times and finally, even King Khan took notice. The superstar retweeted the video saying, “How sweet is this. Beauty lies in simplicity.”

We all knew that King Khan was large-hearted, but this grand gesture makes us love him even more!

Arshad Khan, who’s better known as the Pakistani ChaiWala, is one of social media’s rags-to-riches story. After his photo went viral, Khan’s stardom landed him a modelling offer with an Islamabad-based retail site.

Khan, who comes from a poor background and lives with his sixteen siblings and parents, was later invited to a popular talk show, Good Morning Pakistan, on the ARY network , where he was given a makeover on-screen.

Now that Shah Rukh Khan has blessed Arshad on social media, maybe the superstar’s success will rub off on junior Khan as a good luck charm.
