She started at the age of 17 and has never stopped since then to walk on the road to success. Her first attempt to launch her career in Film and advertising with Kailash Surendranath failed but that didn’t stop her, she then started her commercial television production Balaji Telefilms with some help from her father. Finally, she produced one of her most successful television series ‘Hum Paanch’ in 1995.

She made her Bollywood debut as a director with Kyunki Mai Jhooth nahi Bolta and gave a number of box-office hits thereafter. She then made her debut as a producer with director Sanjay Gupta’s movie Shootout at Lokhandwala and now she has become a household name.
