This Pakistani hunk is making rotis at a tandoor to earn a living
LAHORE - Banaras Khan, a man of ultimate potential who won National and International titles like Mr. Universal USA, Wapda Pakistan and Mr. Pakistan, can be seen making rotis in the Walled City of Lahore every day like any other tandoor wala.

Even as the man holds the title of Mr. Pakistan 2018, his working conditions are still the same for past so many years. He has seven children to feed and need to work hard from 5am-4pm to meet both ends.

"We put our own money in the preparations so thank God I work hard and coach in the gym and earn money from there. We fight competitions abroad and make our country proud. Recently, I won the title of Mr. Pakistan before that I won Wapda Pakistan and in 2014 I won Mr. Universal USA. We manage our own expenses; don’t ask anyone, we work hard on our own. They have never even spoken to me but thanks to Allah we are earning our own respect from His treasure," Khan told Daily Pakistan.

He added, “I won the competition in America; there was a lot of media there, even then I got no encouragement or support from our government. I went to America in 2014 and raised our country’s flag there. If given an opportunity would go again and do the same."

He lives and work in Bhaati Gate area, a constituency of Hamza Shehbaz Sharif (son of Punjab Chief Minister).
