Circle, a film made by Steel City lad, Abhilash Agrawal has brought laurel to the state by securing position in semis of renowned film festivals such as ‘Newark International Film Festival’ held in New Jersey, United States and the ‘Rebel Minded Festival’ held in Brooklyn, New York. The film has reached semi finals surpassing so many submissions from all across the globe and took Chhattisgarh ahead. It needs a mention here that Circle also has the credit of screening at various International Film Festivals.

Filmmaker, Abhilash said “It feels to be acknowledged like this. It boosts our moral. At initial stage things weren’t that smooth. People use to doubt us question us; there was all form of negativity. At times we didn’t even had any answers. Though we always had belief on our art, it was our spiritual journey. Now being awarded like this feels good. If you are bringing something different in the industry, you should be willing to take the risk of failing.”

It needs a mention here that Circle is a musical film led by Abhilash Agrawal, featured by Kashika Singh and Anmol Barbiyal while Lyricist was Abhilash Agrawal and Sung by Sanchit Saxena.
