Aashayein was directed by the national award-winning director Nagesh Kukunoor. Sehgal was cast opposite John Abraham, who played the dying protagonist. Sehgal played the pillar of strength and the only ray of hope in the dying man's life.
Radio is a drama, featuring a complex relationship between a man, his ex-wife (played by Sehgal), and his current girlfriend.
Future to bright hai ji, although a disappointment at the box office, earned great reviews. It is a comedy about a couple from a small town (played by Aamir Bashir and Sonal Sehgal) who come to Mumbai to try their luck in Bollywood. It is a hilarious account of their trials and tribulations. Sehgal penned the lyrics of the title song of the same film.
She worked on many Hindi and Punjabi private albums from 2001 to 2003. Hit songs include Chadi Jawani with Jassy B, Ghungat by Pankaj Udhas, Botla Sarab Diyan with Bally Sagoo, Harbhajan Maan and many more.
