She then decided to give acting a try and gave about 10 auditions, after which she cracked an ad for Dominoes. She started taking part in acting workshops to learn more about acting in depth. She did a few small roles including a cameo as a journalist for different shows or ads. She revealed in an interview that during her struggling days, her friends and flatmates supported her both emotionally as well as financially. She also recalled that she went for the audition of an ad-shoot when a random stranger asked her if she wanted to give an audition for a show made by The Viral Fever aka TVF at the same place.
She agreed to give the audition with the intention to make contacts with the casting directors so that she could get further updates about different auditions. However; it must have been destined that she got selected for the role of Pradhan Ji’s daughter Rinki, who also happens to be the love interest of the protagonist Abhishek Tripathi, played wonderfully by Jitendra Kumar in the comedy-drama web series, Panchayat.
