It is a tough time for the circus industry, but Kohinoor Circus tries to keep the excitement going by using a large macaw, Australian yellow-crested cockatoo and even elephant in their routines. With risky yet enjoyable stunts and routines, they promise to give a treat to the faithful supporters of circus show as they perform in Siliguri, India.
