After winning a Filmfare for the Best Female Debut, she went on to become a big sensation and was seen doing roles which she really believed in.

She impressed both critics and the audience with her roles in movies like Paa, Ishqiya, No One Killed Jessica, The Dirty Picture and Kahaani and broke the stereotypical notion of how a conventional Bollywood heroine should look like.
