Sotheby's opens Indian office

It's only recently that the world's two biggest art auctioneers Christies and Sotheby's have begun focussing on India, but you can see why.

Sotheby's says Indian clients have bought and sold art worth $600m (£385m) in the past five years and it's now decided to open an office in Mumbai - its first in the country.

The BBC's Sameer Hashmi met Sotheby's international chairman Robin Woodhead and started by asking about the state of the art scene in India.
