Speaking about the launch of the YouTube channel, Shakib Khan said that the world is changing. For entertainment, YouTube is now becoming the alternative platform beside cinema halls and TV channels. But absence of proper knowledge and planning, our film industry is failing in getting the benefits of digital marketing.
Film producers, directors, artists and technicians are not being able to get the financial gains from the digital platforms. Where as an artist can get royalty for an unlimited period of time from YouTube. Film director, producer, artists and technician’s families can have financial support from YouTube, he said.
Shakib Khan further said there are times when rumors, slanted news, videos from anonymous YouTube channels harm an artist’s career. Psychological pressure interrupts their performances. They sway far away from their fans and well-wishers. Whereas, the artist can express himself properly on his or her YouTube channel and can give the fact to his or her audience. Considering all these issues Shakib Khan has launched his YouTube Channel ‘Shakib Khan Official’. Regarding Bongo, Shakib Khan stated that Bongo is the largest digital platform in Bangladesh who distributes digital contents on a wider scale and ensures royalty to the right full owner.
