During the early years of her career, she was cast in a television advertisement for Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolates with the Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan.[4] She was also noted for her performance in the remixed Hindi music video for the song Ghar Jayegi.

She has been cast in Tollywood actor Ravi Teja's film Don Seenu marking her entry into Tollywood.
