This freaky 14-year-old Pakistani boy is making ‘head turns’-literally- as he rotates his head a complete 180 degrees to look directly behind him like an owl.

Muhammad Sameer Khan from Karachi has an unbelievable flexibility.

Not just turning his head 180 degrees, Sameer can also rotate his shoulders by 360 degrees.

The teen trains diligently to keep up his extreme elasticity in the hope that one day he will get to play roles in Hollywood horror movies.

Sameer 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 practicing 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.”

The young boy quit his studies after class 6th 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 heart strokes twice and left working.

Mother Rukhsana Khan, 45, said: “Sameer’s father was working in a textile mill. But he had to stop working after he suffered heart strokes twice in a year.

“Since then he not keeping well and the whole responsibility of the family came on Sameer’s shoulders.

“He is only a kid but we have no other option. I wanted him to study and make a name for himself but destiny had something else in store.”

Sameer along with eight other members of the dance group performs at dance shows across Karachi.

For every show, the talented boy earns between £6 to £10.

Sameer explained: “I can make around £100 to £120 every month.

“I work so that I can support my family. I don’t want that due to lack of resources my four sisters do not have to quit studies.

The young boy has found several fans in his dance group where he never shies away from showing his incredible talent.

Asher Khan, lead dancer of Dangerous Boys, said: “I was shocked when I first saw Sameer’s ability to rotate his neck and shoulders. He is incredible.

“He is extremely flexible and I am sure he will go a long way if he gets proper training.”

The young boy sees his dance performance as a way of fulfilling his dream of being on stage and hopes that someday someone would see his potential and offer him a role in movies.

He says: “I am working on my dance skills, gymnastic stunts and acting skills as well in order to find better work opportunities to support my family and fulfil my dream. I hope to show my talent in big screens someday.”
