The teenager, who trains constantly to keep up his elasticity, said, "I must have been six or seven when I saw an actor in a Hollywood horror movie turning his head to look behind him. I started practising for it and within a few months, I was able to do it."

Sameer said that his mother initially slapped him for doing this, but she soon realised that he was gifted.  "My dream is to work like that actor in Hollywood horror movies," he said. Sameer has quit his studies and is part of a dance group, Dangerous Boys, to earn a living and help his family run the household after his father fell ill.
