The actress’ early filmography had films like “Woh Lamhe”, “Life in a… Metro” and “Fashion”, which also earned the actress her first National Award.

In between, she appeared in a string of flops such as “Shakalaka Boom Boom”, “Raaz: The Mystery Continues”, “Vaada Raha”, which almost pushed her into oblivion.
