Can stunting be taken as a profession?

I'm not too sure about it. A cousin of mine does talk a lot about stunting and what he earns out of each stunt shows but i doubt if it can be taken as a serious profession. And i do think it very dangerous to take it as a profession. Once you have a family of your own you can't risk breaking bones and dislocating your spine just for a mere pleasure of stunting. Sorry no offense to the bike stunters. What do you think of it?

hi divkris, how are u? yes, stunting is a dangerous profession. once i met a stuntman in a shooting. i asked him that how easily he gets ready for a lethal task. he said that he must have to do for his family bcoz he had some responsibilities to his poor family. i don't think that they do it only for pleasure.

I'm doing good shibhan, thankyou. Hope the same there at your end. When a person indulges into stunting it more of a passion but later with family responsibility and social burden one does make a choice. It is like they are too much into the stunting busines that they feel that they can work only with this skill. But i do understand the pathetic condition in which these people and their family live :(

Yes, I agree with you. It is not the right job for a family person. I can understand a teenager or young guy works choose stunting as job for sometime due to his passion, but I think it should not be contiued. I think stunters are paid well. Do you have any idea about their wages?

I don' think these stunnters are paid well. This is why i ask is this a good profession where you actually risk your live (and others as well). It is just that some a lucky and get paid well and this is instigates to choose this field, even though they know that they may not be as lucky as the others.
