Indeed, it will be an opportune time for the students of Indian and Pakistani origins enrolled at the Oxford University to sit together and brainstorm ways to end the tensions between the two countries. Though it will be too gigantic a task to achieve, it cannot be ruled out.

According to news reports, the principal of Oxford University is totally impressed by India’s super star Shah Rukh Khan (also known as King Khan in the cinema world) and he took to Twitter to invite him as a speaker to inspire his students.


In his tweet, he wrote:

“Hey SRK, can we tempt you to Oxford University to talk to our students at @lmhoxford? They love you (I’m the principal)”

We are still waiting for SRK’s response. However, it will go down well in history if he agrees to speak with Pakistan’s Blue-eyed Chaiwala who made his big debut in a music video that has gone viral. Interestingly enough, he has also been invited in the same event at Oxford University.

According to NDTV, Arshad Khan, who works at Islamabad’s Sunday Bazaar (Peshawar Chowk), has gained worldwide reputation now. The Instagram post on October 14 by aspiring photographer Jiah Ali (@jiah_ali) went viral and caused a sensation with #chaiwala being among the top Twitter trends on Monday. The story was picked up by international media, including popular US website Buzzfeed.

In an interview with local TV news, Arshad indicated that he has been living in Islamabad for the last 25 years and joined the tea stall a few months ago, the Daily Pakistan reported.
