The ‘Great Bombay Circus’ is one of the oldest circus companies in the country, having started in 1920. It has managed to survive, performing shows across the country and sometimes even outside. The industry says it is in a bad shape and needs support from the government to survive.

74-year-old Tulsidas Chowdary has been a part of the Great Bombay Circus for 61 years. Tulsidas says the best part of his job as a clown is “making people laugh and forget about their worries for that moment”.
