The video then caught the eye of a famous production house Ramoji Films, who then cast her in a Telugu film called Ishtam. She then had her first commercial success with Santhosham.
3. There was a time when her films were failing miserably in the box office and there were times even when the films were successful but her performance was sidelined most of the time. During this time, she devoted herself to featuring in various item numbers and also made a debut in Bollywood with the film Awarapan. She was then featured in Rajinikanth's mega-blockbuster film Sivaji - The Boss which was the most expensive films in Indian cinema.
