Personal life and education
She studied at Indian School Muscat and Indian School Salalah in Oman. Later she moved to Mumbai with her mother and attended Durelo Convent High School and later studied at Vartak College. At college she befriended Arpita Khan, her college mate and the younger sister of Bollywood actor Salman Khan. The friendship led to the chance meeting with Salman Khan and film offers.
Ullal made her movie debut in the 2005 Hindi movie Lucky: No Time for Love opposite Salman Khan. After the movie, she was noted for striking similarities in appearance with Aishwarya Rai. She later said that although the comparison didn't help her as an actor, but it gave her a lot of recognition. Ullal then appeared with Khan's brother Sohail Khan in Aryan, which did not do well at the box office.
Fearing that she was too young and needed to be more mature to take plunge in movies, she took a break from Bollywood. She made her debut in Telugu movies in Ullasamga Utsahamga, which turned out to be a huge hit and made her popular in the South. Nenu Meeku Telusa...? was her second Telugu release. It was followed by an item number on the song Nuvvu ready in the Telugu movie King opposite Nagarjuna.
In 2007, she was cast to appear in Pirate's Blood by prolific horror filmmaker and character actor Steg Dorr. In interviews Dorr would say "we canceled them because of hurricane. We could not get it going on and the financing fell through." The role later went to Oman actress Maimoon Al-Balushi.
Later, she signed Kaashh... Mere Hote to show that she is still interested in Hindi films. Her next few films didn't do well at the box officer, but her 2010 release Simha opposite Balakrishna turned out to be a blockbuster.
