Accepting the offer, she made her acting debut in the 2007 Telugu film Happy Days, enacting the role of Shravs. The film, upon release, became a stupendous blockbuster and won six awards at the 2008 Filmfare Awards South, one of which was the Award for Best Supporting Actress for Sonia for her performance that fetched her rave reviews.
In late 2008, her second film Vinayakudu opposite Krishnudu, one of her co-actors in Happy Days, got released, which went on to become a successful venture as well. She soon got offers from the Tamil film industry as well and would debut in Tamil with the Lingusamy-directed romantic-action film Paiyaa and also awaiting the release of the film Inidhu Inidhu, a Tamil remake of Happy Days, in which she would reprise her role. Shooting for both films was carried out through 2008 and 2009, which both are expected to release for summer 2010.
