She is most known for her score for the film, Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! (2008), which won the National Film Award for the Best Popular Film. Born and brought up in Indore, where her mother's family was entrenched in the Gwalior gharana of Hindustani classical music, thus she learned music as a child, and she and her sister used to sing at family occasions. During her HSC vacations, she did an animation course and art direction course. In 2001, her family moved to Mumbai, with an aim of her joining an engineering college, but instead she started working in animation followed by art direction before deciding on music direction as a career, after rediscovering her childhood passion for music. In 2004, she scored the movie The Hope, which competed at the Internationales Filmfest Emden in Germany.
