She received her entry into acting when she was visiting the set of Yuvraaj at Subhash Ghai’s film school Whistling Woods. Salman Khan noticed her and decided to cast her for his film Veer. After a screen test, Khan was confirmed for the role of Princess Yashodhara. She gained eight kilos in order to be more convincing as a 19th century princess.
