Sometimes one photo is enough to radically change your whole life. A striking example of this is 13-year-old Rita Gaviola from the Philippines, who begged on the street, but one random picture made her a model.

A similar story happened with Arshad Khan, a former tea merchant from Pakistan. After the picture of the blue-eyed guy got into social networks, his life changed forever.

The guy started receiving promotional offers from large companies producing food, clothing and shoes. And although Arshad himself did not consider himself handsome, and his appearance was somehow special, he decided to try himself as a model.

Once the guy even starred in a video of the famous Pakistani singer Muskana Jay, but this experience turned out to be unsuccessful for him. Arshad's conservative parents considered the clip too explicit, so for a while he had to give up filming in advertising.
