Television career

Singh debuted on Hindi television with Sony Entertainment Television’s iconic and super-hit soap opera Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin (2003–06) in which she gained popularity through her work as the sincere, intelligent, and naive Jasmeet “Jassi” Walia for three years. The show made her a household name and won her many accolades at award functions such as the Apsara Awards, Indian Telly Awards, and Indian Television Academy Awards.

In 2006, she participated in the reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 1 and emerged as the winner. She hosted Femina Miss India and Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 2 in 2007, followed by her participation and win in Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena in 2008.

Singh then teamed up with Ekta Kapoor‘s banner Balaji Telefilms for the first of four consecutive fiction show collaborations in NDTV Imagine’s Radhaa Ki Betiyaan Kuch Kar Dikhayengi where she was cast as Raunaq Makhija from 2008 to 2009. Shifting her focus to mostly hosting and nonfiction shows, she hosted Entertainment Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega (2009), Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 4 (2010), Shaadi 3 Crore Ki (2010), Star Ya Rockstar (2011) and CID Veerta Awards (2012) and was a participant on Meethi Choori No 1 (2010).

By returning to fiction shows, she entered Sony Entertainment Television‘s Kya Huaa Tera Vaada (produced by Kapoor) in 2012 as Mona, a wife whose husband leaves and divorces due to an extramarital affair with his former girlfriend. The show ended in 2013, and she took a break from television afterward.

Two years later Singh made a comeback to television in October 2015 with Pyaar Ko Ho Jaane Do, her third consecutive show to be produced by Kapoor where she played Preet Singh, a woman who lost her parents. Due to low TRPs, Pyaar Ko Ho Jaane Do went off air within three months in January 2016. Later in 2016, she featured in Kapoor’s supernatural production Kavach…Kaali Shaktiyon Se as Paridhi, a married woman attempting to protect her husband from his former lover who has turned into a spirit post-death and arrived to haunt the couple, and hosted Comedy Nights Bachao.

In September 2021, she hosted the &TV’s show Mauka-E-Vardaat.

Web series career

In 2018, Singh ventured into the web world with her portrayal of Ananya in Kehne Ko Humsafar Hain. That year she also starred in The Viral Fever and Netflix series Yeh Meri Family. In 2019, she was seen in ZEE5 and ALT Balaji series Mission Over Mars. She next appeared in Black Widows on ZEE5.

In 2023, Singh appeared in the Zoya Akhtar-created Made In Heaven as Bulbul Jauhari. Singh played the role of an auditor attempting to bring the company out of debt whilst simultaneously handling a police case against her son. She received critical acclaim for her role from critics and audiences alike. Singh next appeared in a brief but pivotal role as a doctor in Netflix’s Kaala Paani. Her performance was well-received by critics.

Film career

Singh made her film debut in 2009 with the supporting and important character of Mona Sahastrabuddhe in Rajkumar Hirani‘s Hindi satirical comedy 3 Idiots, which became one of the highest-grossing Indian films with a global accumulation of about ₹4 billion (US$50 million). She next appeared in Utt PataangZed Plus, and Amavas.

In 2022, she appeared in Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha, where she played the protagonist’s mother. Despite being 16 years younger than Khan, Singh defended her role and stated, ”I’m not playing Aamir Khan’s mother, I’m playing Laal’s mother.”
