New Delhi: Indian model-turned-actress Sheena Chohan, who started her career with Malayalam blockbuster `The Train` has been chosen as the face of the inaugural edition of Bangladesh Premiere League (BPL).

Sheena will report live from the stadium during the matches and will also be a part of the studio interviews.

"I love sports and cricket is one of my favourite sport. I have always followed IPL matches and World Cup and cheered for my favourite team. But I never realised the effort and detailing that went into each and every match till today when I got an opportunity to be a part of BPL," Sheena said.

"I am really honoured to be a part of this international sports extravaganza and I am looking forward to this new experience which will help me connect and reach out to a much larger audience," she added.

The actress is set to sizzle the silver screen once again with yet another ambitious project based on the works of noted Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore, to be directed by a poet and a contemporary filmmaker, Buddhadeb Dasgupta.
