Her efforts earned her the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut, and she was later recognised for her part as a teenage single mother in Kya Kehna (2000). She went on to have a great career as a leading actress in Hindi films, in which she appeared in a variety of roles.
Her culturally provocative performances and her unique screen presence have been credited with helping to transform the perception of Indian cinema heroines, and she has received several awards.
She won the Filmfare Award for Best Actress for her portrayal in the play Kal Ho Naa Ho, after highly acclaimed appearances in Chori Chori Chupke Chupke (2001), Dil Chahta Hai (2001), Dil Hai Tumhaara (2002), and Armaan (2003).
She went on to star in the science fiction picture Koi Mil Gaya (2003) and the love drama Veer-Zaara were both yearly top-grossing films in India (2004).
