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]

She won praise for her depiction of Priya as she wore limited makeup and acted in a role different from her previous glam doll roles.

Bogan was her first release in 2017 and it opened to positive reviews. She was paired opposite Jayam Ravi for the third time. Many critics praised Motwani for her performance in the introduction scene and the pre-climax scene. She also acted in a Telugu film Luckunnodu. Motwani’s Malayalam debut Villain alongside Mohanlal, Vishal and Raashi Khanna opened to mixed reviews[citation needed] in 2017 but her performance was praised. Goutham Nanda opened to mixed reviews with her short role was not well-received by critics.[citation needed]

Her first release of 2018 was Gulebakavali opposite Prabhu Deva in which she played a con artist named Viji. Although the movie opened to mixed reviews,[citation needed] it fared well in the box office and earned Motwani praise for her role. She would next appear in Thuppaki Munai starring Vikram Prabhu and an untitled Tamil film with Atharvaa directed by Sam Anton.
