Early life[edit]

Career[edit]

Randhawa won the Jaipur Queen's Crown in 1993. It was here that Saawan Kumar noticed and signed her for Salma Pe Dil Aa Gaya. After that she went on to star in the film Shikaar, and performed an item number in the film Satta.

Her subsequent attempt to break into the movie industry of southern India was not successful and she returned to Bollywood.[4] There she took a role in Ananth opposite Krishna (Govinda's nephew), Raj Sippy's Khujali to Aye Watan.[5]

Aside from performing in several stage shows, Randhawa has also worked in Daler Mehndi's music album Nabi Buba Nabi.
