Muhammad Sameer, 14-year-old boy from Karachi, uses his hands to help rotate his head back over his shoulders and wishes to land a Hollywood movie with his unbelievable flexibility. Sameer constantly trains to keep up his elasticity.

“I would have been six or seven when I saw an actor in a Hollywood horror movie turning his head to look behind him. It fascinated me. I started practising for it and within a few months, I was able to do it,” says the gifted teenager.

He says that it is his dream to work like that actor in Hollywood’s horror movies. Sameer comes from a low-income background and quit his studies to earn a living, and helps his family run the household smile his father fell ill. He is also part of a dance group called Dangerous Boys, wherein he gets a chance to perform at dance shows along with eight other members of the group. For every show, Sameer earns between Rs. 800 to Rs. 1,300.

“I work so that I can support my family. I don't want my four sisters to quit studies due to lack of resources,” says the doting brother.
