"How long can I wait to see my reflection on mirror? Just waiting for your arrival. Happy Sankranthi. [sic]" she had posted.

The multifaceted talent came to light after participating in Bigg Boss Kannada season 6. Her friendship with another contestant had not gone well with the conservative audience and she was heavily criticised by netizens on social media sites.

The girl from Mandya has not been seen in TV or cinema after the curtains for Sudeep's Bigg Boss Kannada 6 were dropped. Of late, she had started a cookery show on her YouTube channel.

Coming to her personal life, she had reportedly tied the knot with Prasanna in 2018.
