She started her career as a child artist at the age of three with the film Nazarana and a background dancer in the late 1950s. She learnt dance while working under film choreographer B Sohanlal. Later, she herself shifted to choreography, first as an assistant choreographer and later getting her break as an independent choreographer, with Geeta Mera Naam (1974).

However, the three-time National award winner had to wait many years to receive acclaim, which came with her work with Sridevi; Hawa Hawai in Mr India (1987), Nagina (1986) and Chandni (1989) and later with Madhuri Dixit starting with the super hit Ek Do Teen from Tezaab (1988), Tamma Tamma from Thanedaar (1990) and Dhak Dhak from Beta in (1992). Thereafter, she went on to become one of the most successful Bollywood choreographers.
