Career edit

After Standard XII, she got into local modelling for about a year. Then she started training for the Gladrags contest.[1] During that time, Balaji's auditions were taking place in Pune. Sawant went to the auditions for a lark. They shortlisted her for Kya Hadsaa Kya Haqeeqat, and she had to move to Mumbai. The KHKH shoot did not happen, and she played a small role in Kasautii Zindagii Kay as Rishab Bajaj's associate. Ekta Kapoor informed Sawant that she was keen to cast her in Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi (Star Plus) and Kammal (Zee TV). She accepted both offers. Sawant also played the role of Rohit Sharma's wife in Des Mein Niklla Hoga Chand. She played the role of Preeti in Pyaar Ka Dard Hai Meetha Meetha Pyaara Pyaara. She played the role of Meera, Riya Mehra's governess in Kumkum Bhagya. Since 2022, she is portraying Barkha Kapadia opposite Rohit Bakshi in Anupamaa.
