“Second-grade foreign artists instead of local ones are being used to make advertisements, which are not rational,” said Information Minister Hasan Mahmud at a meeting in Dhaka on Thursday. “When BTV was the only channel in the country, many advertisements were aired on BTV. At that time, if a foreign artist was performing in any advertisement, separate taxes were imposed." “There should be a plausible reason to use foreign artists in local advertisements ignoring the local ones. ”The ministry has written to the relevant people about the issue and the decision will be taken after consulting everyone, according to the information minister.
