The director quickly recognized her talent and offered her the role of the female protagonist in his film Naseem (1995), a Bollywood film based on the Babri Masjid demolition. First she declined the offer as she had to appear for her HSC board exams. But later, after some discussion with the director, accepted the role.[1]

Mahesh Bhatt was impressed by her performance and offered her the lead role in his next film Papa Kehte Hai (1996). Though the film was not a critical or commercial success, her acting received generally positive reviews. She was later seen in films like Betaabi (1997), Hogi Pyaar Ki Jeet (1999) and Badal (2000). She moved to television appearing in serials Dollar Bahu (2001) and Karishma - The Miracles of Destiny (2003) where she played the daughter of Karishma Kapoor.
