She next signed the Hindi film titled He: The Only One, where she was to essay the role of a killer, hell-bent on taking revenge for her family,[8] but the film was later shelved.

Hansika’s first 2008 release was Bindaas, starring Puneet Rajkumar, her first and only Kannada film to date. Later that year, she was paired with Jr. NTR in the film Kantri. She made her Tamil film debut in the successful 2011 film Mappillai, opposite Dhanush. Her next Tamil film, Engeyum Kadhal, opposite Jayam Ravi, was also successful.[9] The 2011 film Velayudham, in which she starred alongside Vijay, became a box-office success; this was her first time playing the role of a village belle.

In 2012 Hansika had two releases, one in Tamil and Telugu each. Her first release was M. Rajesh‘s romantic comedy Oru Kal Oru Kannadi, which became her first runaway hit and earned her positive reviews from critics for her performance.[10] In Telugu, she was featured in Denikaina Ready, opposite Vishnu Manchu, which also earned a positive response from the public.[11] She received her first Best Actress nomination at the 60th Filmfare Awards South for her performance in the film. In 2013, she appeared in four Tamil films, Settai, opposite Arya,[12] Sundar C.‘s Theeya Velai Seiyyanum Kumaru, opposite Siddharth, Hari‘s Singam II starring Suriya[13] and Venkat Prabhu‘s Biriyani with Suriya’s brother, Karthi. She had five releases in 2014, two of them being Telugu films, the comedy flick Pandavulu Pandavulu Thummeda[14] and the action-masala Power.[15] Her Tamil releases were the fantasy film Maan Karate,[16] Sundar C‘s horror comedy Aranmanai[17] and the action thriller Meaghamann, with the former two becoming two of the most profitable films of the year.[18]

Aambala, her third collaboration with Sundar C, was her first 2015 release. She will next be seen in Vaalu with Silambarasan,[19] with whom she was supposed to act in the gangster film Vettai Mannan as well, which was stalled.[20] Other upcoming films of Motwani include the romance films Romeo Juliet and Uyire Uyire, the remake of the Telugu film Ishq under Jaya Prada‘s production as well as the magnum opus fantasy film Puli directed by Chimbu Deven.[21]

In 2015, her movie Romeo Juliet with Jayam Ravi, Poonam Bajwa, VTV Ganesh, Vamsi Krishna, Uma Padmanabhan and Arya (Cameo Role) directed by Lakshman released on 12 June 2015. Online movie portal has rated it “A fun filled romantic Comedy”.[22]
