The man with the shirt made of gold

An Indian man has bought what is believed to be one of the world's most expensive shirts, made entirely from gold.

Datta Phuge's $250,000 garment is just one extreme example of India's obsession with the precious metal.

The shirt only gets an outing on special occasions, like parties and important functions - and Phuge has a security guard with him wherever he travels, to protect his purchase.

The BBC's Rajini Vaidyanathan went to meet Phuge - and his shirt's designer and creator, Tejpal Rankar of Rankar Jewellers.
