We captured Ankit’s 12 year journey as an Stunt Freestyler.He entered the motorcycle world at a very tender age.
Ankit : I started performing stunts in very tender age. At the age of 10 I was already doing some basic stunts on bicycle and by the age of 12 I was performing some deadly stunts on bike. My interest increased and went to another level once I started performing in various colleges and in Ganpati festival. After doing my first professional shoot in a documentary I chased my dream and decided to take it up as a career.
- Ankit : Challenges play an important role as it help us grow and mature in the field. Below is the list of few of the challenges i faced in this journey.
No place to stunt as it is not a v.famous and popular games like cricket.
- Financial issues and scarcity – as we have to do lot of modifications in bike to make it manageable and up to the personal controlling power and scarcity of spare parts.
- As it is not recognized field ,it is really v.tough to make a career option in INDIA as people don’t value it.
- No sponsors and financial support from any company.
Ankit : By god’s grace nothing so far as i always perform stunts in proper riding and safety gears.
Ankit : Be patient and determination is the key. Also, it is equally important to wear safety gears while practicing or performing. Performing/ Practicing on track is must and most important. Always have a tendency to teach and stay focused.
