Dian finally kick-started her career on the big screen with a starring role in the boxoffice hit (In Indonesia and Malaysia) Ada Apa Dengan Cinta (AADC) (What's Up With Love? (film)). Since then she has established herself as one of Indonesia's most bankable actresses, starring in films such as, Banyu Biru, Ungu Violet and Belahan Jiwa. as well as foreign movies such as, Puteri Gunung Ledang, which was produced in Malaysia.
In 2010, Sastrowardoyo starred in Fana: The Forbidden Love, produced by Dalton Alka Cinema, a film company from Turkey. Fana was scheduled to appear early 24 December 2010, the sixth anniversary of 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami, however it was banned in Aceh because of sexual themes. In the film, Sastrowardoyo tested her acting skill with her portrayal of Gayo, a blind Muslim transgender who falls in love with her brother Azzam, played by Dude Harlino. In addition to Harlino, Dian was also paired with characters played by Christine Hakim and Deddy Mizwar.
Another recent film was Cintaku Di Kabut Toba or Love in Fog Toba, directed by Chaerul Umam. In this film, Dian worked for the fourth time with the actor Nicholas Saputra, after they scored a huge success in Ada Apa Dengan Cinta?, 3 Doa 3 Cinta, and Drupadi. Cintaku Di Kabut Toba recounts the story of Seruni, a famous actress, who ran away from the noisy world of entertainment, to a remote village in Toba, North Sumatra. Seruni meets Samosir, played by Saputra, which changes drastically Seruni's life. They then fell in love. However Seruni suddenly disappeared, and returned to Jakarta without saying good-bye to Samosir. Apparently Seruni had Alzheimer's disease. They later reunited ten years later in very different conditions
