Indian stuntwoman 'proud' to break stereotypes

For the past few months India has been in the spotlight for a series of violent assaults on women - but some females are challenging stereotypes and breaking into areas normally dominated by men.

Sanobar Pardiwala works as a stunt woman in the movie industry.

She told the BBC that being constantly surrounded by men can be tough - but it gives her a great sense of pride.
