No, it depend on the magnetic field, i.e. whether the field is a uniform or a non-uniform magnetic field and also on the orientation of the current loop. In case of a uniform magnetic field, the force on the circular loop is zero if the magnetic field is parallel to the plane of the loop and in case of a non-uniform magnetic field, the force may or may not be zero.
