She became a part of Bollywood dance communities and took part in Bollywood dance competitions. She was then hired by two national television channels as a celebrity choreographer.
In 2019, she decided to experiment a little and started remaking music videos of popular Bollywood soundtracks. Her YouTube channel began to grow and the girl became an Internet sensation in no time.
