“We thought of starting in YouTube because it is a free channel and would be easily accessible to the children over mobile phones and other hand-held gadgets. Also, we thought of starting with Bengali animated cartoons because besides in Bangladesh and India, there is a huge Bengali diaspora across the world.

“We plan to come up with a Satellite Cartoon Channel within two years. Over the period of time we’ll come up with merchandising and licensing of our different cartoon characters,” said Roy. (IANS)
