Breaking Stereotypes And Bar Fights, Meet Delhi’s Famous Bouncer Sisters Mehrunnisa & Tarannum
The Social is one of Delhi’s most famous watering holes. It’s also famous for its female bouncer Mehrunnisa & Tarannum. She has been a bouncer for nearly a decade, and for the last three years, has done 10-hour night shifts.
Mehrunnisa is no stranger to smashing stereotypes. Growing up in a large Muslim family in the northern farming town of Saharanpur, 200 km from Delhi, she dreamed of joining the army or becoming a police officer, but her deeply conservative father opposed the idea.
