She dreamed of serving the nation by becoming a police officer or joining the army, but her conservative father denied. But now she is a lady bouncer at one of the Delhi's most famous pubs.

In an all-black outfit, with arms folded, she stands on the edge of the dance floor guaranteeing people to provide them with a blissful evening. She is Mehrunnisa Shokat Ali, who has been working at a Social Bar in Delhi for the last three years.

The lady about whom we are talking today has done 10-hour night shifts at the bar which functions as a restaurant during the day seating 220 people and as a packed club at night.

Not just breaking the stereotypes but also the bar fights, with her lovely features and gentleness in demeanour, she is changing your image of a bouncer -- typically with a bulky body large enough to fend you off just by size. 

She was born in a Muslim family in Saharanpur, 200km from Delhi.
