She stepped into playback singing in the Tamil film industry by singing the song “O Mahire” from the 2004 film Manmadhan under the direction of noted music composer Yuvan Shankar Raja.

In 2006 then, she got her first opportunity to sing for a Hindi film as well, which was the title song of the film Golmaal, composed by Vishal-Shekhar. This was followed by several other songs under other noted music composers as Anu Malik, Salim-Sulaiman, Pritam and Shankar–Ehsaan–Loy. She has also done a cameo role in the Bollywood film Dulha Mil Gaya, for which she has sung three songs as well. She has also appeared in a reality show of MTV Pulsar Stunt Mania in year 2010.[1] She recently featured by Akcent in ‘I am Sorry’, which went to high critical acclaim.

In 2013, she sang the remix version of 1991 hit song (originally sung by Kavita Krisnamurthy in the film Chalbaaz) “Na jaane kahan se aya hai” featuring Neeraj Shridhar.
