After gaining an interest in modelling, Wilson competed for the Miss India South 2011 title in late 2010, and was awarded the HICC Femina Miss South Beautiful Smile award during the competition.[3][4]

Wilson appeared in her first acting role in Soundarya Rajinikanth's Tamil film Velaiilla Pattadhari 2 (2017), where she portrayed the personal assistant of the businesswoman played by Kajol.[5][6]

In mid-2017, Wilson received widespread media attention in Tamil Nadu after signing on to appear on the Tamil reality TV show, Bigg Boss (Tamil) - Season 1, hosted by Kamal Haasan. She was evicted from the show after 63 days and in the process became the longest-lasting original female contestant. After her exit, Wilson stated that she felt "fortunate to become the part of the show" and "would cherish the memory forever".[7]
