It just an idiom. It meant for luck, not really wishing anyone would actually break a leg. It's like paint the town red. Should we really do it?

The term "break a leg" actually originated in theater.

If the person is will do something that can possibly break his leg, then saying that could mean something or turned out to be awkward. Since there are other ways to wish him luck, it may be more appropriate to say it in another term or simply say "good luck" instead. Use the break a leg in other occasions instead when he is not doing a stunt or something dangerous.
