Jholay grossed over 10 million at the box office.[4] Her next big release was Nai Nabannu La 2 opposite Suraj Singh Thakuri, which grossed over four million NPR.[5] She also appeared in several music videos, including 'Guras Fulyo Banai Bhari' a song by Kishor Siwakoti and Asha Bhosle.

Karki's performances in Jholay and Nai Na Bhannu La 2 earned her the Online Filmykhabar Award as Best Actress 2017,[6] NEFTA Award for Best Actor in a supporting role (Female), INFA award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Female) and INFA Most Popular Actor (Female).

Her next release Aawaran did not perform as well as previous movies at the box office. Although not a commercial success, it launched Karki as a singer in the Nepalese music industry, and she went on to sing the original soundtrack of Aawaran in collaboration with Yama Buddha.[7]

Karki's Suntali was selected to premiere at the 19th Busan International Film Festival under the category 'A Window on Asian Cinema', on the fifth day of the festival. Suntali was released in February 2015 and although not a success commercially, Karki won Best Actor (Female) at the National Film Critics Award (NFCA) and the NFDC National Film Awards 2017.[8]

In 2015, Karki starred as the title character in the horror/thriller film Mala, a widow, with long black hair and a white sari who is seen throughout the film but speaks only one word. Karki featured on the song "Surke Thaili Khai"; it went on to become the first Nepali song to reach 20 million views on YouTube.[9][10]

In 2016, Karki appeared as 'Ani' in the fourth installment of the Nai NaBhannu La series. Nai NaBhannu La 4 grossed over 20 million in its first week of release.[11] Soon after, Karki portrayed a female detective opposite Keki Adhikari in the comedy film How Funny.

At the end of the year, Karki was seen as a police inspector in the family drama Shatru Gatey. Her work was highly praised and the movie went on to become one of the most successful movies in Nepali film history celebrating 100 days at the theatre. Karki next appeared in the comedy/social drama Kohalpur Express alongside Keki Adhikari and Reecha Sharma. This female-centric film was highly successful at the box office, though receiving mixed reviews. Karki's releases for 2018 were Katha Kathmandu opposite Ayushman Deshraj Joshi, and Nai Na Bhannu La 5.
