She has studied in one of the most reputed colleges in Bangalore—Mount carmel College for Women where she completed her BCA.
However, it was a Tollywood movie with none other than Akkineni Nagarjuna which brought her here. Titled Super, the movie which also starred Sonu Sood and Bollywood actress Ayesha Takia, was directed by Puri Jagannath. And like they say, after that the rest is history.
