That is when Sameer dropped out of school and joined a dance group called ‘Dangerous Boys’ in order to help out his family financially. It is a dance group of eight members which performs at different shows for a small fee.
Sameer earns 600 to 1000 PKR ($5.71 to $9.51) per show. Although his mother initially tried to stop him from practicing dangerous stunts, she soon realized that it “was a gift from God."
