Her career sometime around 2010 wasn’t her best- she released movies such as Karthik calling Karthik, Lafangey Parindey, Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey and some others but they were not hits in Bollywood. But when she signed up for the movie Cocktail in 2012, things finally took a turn for good. Then began her career high, which is going on until now and is sure to continue for a long time owing to her pure talent. She was cast in movies such as- Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Race 2, Chennai Express and Ram-Leela, all of which turned out to be blockbusters.
