I also want to thank my husband Omar Sani for giving me the courage, support and inspiration for this.”
Moushumi also announced that Yes News Bd will soon launch their official YouTube channel named Yes Max. Moushumi’s husband Dhallywood film star Omar Sani will be the chairman of Yes Max and Shahedul Islam Shahed will be its managing director who is also the publisher of Yes News Bd.
