The agency has won the account for the second consecutive year.

Fruitbowl Digital, a full-service interactive media agency, has bagged the digital mandate for Majhi Metro Festival for the second year in a row. The account was won following a multi-agency pitch. As part of the win, the agency will work on integrating the brand's online and offline presence together.

The Majhi Metro Festival brings together art and culture at Mumbai's metro stations with the aim to make daily commute and local travel an optimistic and joyful experience for the citizens of Mumbai. The Majhi Metro Festival, an annual affair that celebrates different forms of art, was first organised in 2013 which saw the participation of students from the disciplines of Fine Arts and Applied Arts, across Mumbai. The 21-day festival is currently underway in Mumbai, and will go on until July 31.

The theme for this year's festival is 'My Metro My Story'. Poets, photographers, and painters across Mumbai have been invited to showcase their talent.
