A close-up photo of a Bangladeshi construction worker in Malaysia has captivated social media users worldwide. The photo shows the construction worker with Olive green coloured eyes and chiselled looks staring intently into the camera. The image that was shared on Twitter, Garnered 1.8k likes since it was posted by AbedenMung on last week.

AbedenMung said in his tweet that the photograph was taken at an MRT construction site near Jalan Ipoh.

"First I met him when I was doing a vlog. I didn't had the chance to snap because I was filming but today, this morning, he was there again. So, I quickly pull out the Pixel 2 XL instead of my other phone, the iPhone XS Max because I was texting on that phone," he tweeted.

He added that he knew it was going to be good shot, as the place had great lighting, the man's clothes were great, and his eyes were a "must be photographed eyes".

Take a look:

Many Twitter users were in awe of the man's chiselled features. One said the photo reminded him of the 1984 National Geographic cover of Sharbat Gula, which was photographed by journalist Steve McCurry.

Sharbat Gula was known as the Afghan girl with striking green eyes in a red headscarf looking into the camera.
