Her first film was Mani Ratnam’s Iruvar, in which she played a rather diminutive role but she could captivate the audience by her dance performance and in depth acting. With duds like ‘Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya’ and ‘Jeans’, when everybody had almost written her off till she bounced back with a stunning performance in ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’. ‘Taal’ set her on equal footing with the reigning Goddess Madhuri Dixit.

With extravaganza Devdas on one hand she has also starred in a frugally budgeted Bengali Film, ‘Choker Bali’ on the other.
