This is Pakistan’s ‘human owl’ teenager who can turn his head 180 degrees to look directly behind him.
Muhammad Sameer, from the southern Pakistani city of Karachi, uses his hands to help rotate his head back over his shoulders.
Now the 14-year-old is hoping his unbelievable flexibility will land him a part in a Hollywood movie.
Not just turning his head 180 degrees, Sameer can also rotate his shoulders by 360 degrees. Now the teenager is hoping his unbelievable flexibility will land him a part in a Hollywood movie.
The teenager, who trains constantly to keep up his elasticity, said: ‘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 few months, I was able to it.
‘My mother slapped me when she saw me doing this and told me never to do it again as I might end up hurting my neck but with time she realised that I’m God gifted.
‘My dream is to work like that actor in Hollywood horror movies.’
Sameer quit his studies and became part of a dance group, Dangerous Boys, to earn a living and help his family run the household affairs after his father fell ill. His father Sajid Khan, 49, had suffered strokes twice and was forced to quit his job at a textile mill.
Sameer along with eight other members of the dance group perform at dance shows across Karachi. For every show, the talented boy earns between Rs600 to Rs1,000.
