She was awarded the Palm Pusthakapura Akshara Thoolika award for her works in poetry.

After graduating from high school, she moved to Dubai and started working as a cabin crew with Fly Dubai.

She has penned lyrics for many Malayalam films and her credits include 2_Penkuttikal, Sathya, C/O_Saira_Banu, and Lailaa_O_Lailaa.

In March 2018, she appeared on the cover of Mathrubhumi Grihalakshmi, a Malayalam magazine, as a part of their ‘breastfeed freely’ campaign. She has posed breastfeeding a baby for the cover which sparked major outrage on social media. This was because the magazine used a model for the cover rather than a real mother. Eventually, a case has been filed against the model and the magazine.

In 2021, she starred in a web series titled Instagraamam, and movies such as Jan.E.Man, Bhramam, Kaaval, and Sumesh and Ramesh.
