Adah Sharma first faced the grease paint for TV commercials. She did commercials for several reputed brands like Limca, Nokia, Olay natural white, Joyalukkas jewellery and Parachute Hair oil.
She made her filmy debut in 2008 with Bollywood film, 1920. The movie won critical acclaim and almost all film critics and reviewers sang praises of her acting caliber. She was even nominated for Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut. However, film offers did not come her way so easily. It took her 3 years for her next Bollywood film, Phhir. Her recent release, Hum Hai Raahi Car Ke is also a flop.
Adah Sharma was chosen by Puri Jagannadh as the female lead in his upcoming film, Heart Attack starring Nithin. Puri has a great name for portraying heroines at their best. So, Adah had pinned high hopes on this film to make it big in Tamil.
She scored some brownie points for the role in her maiden Telugu film, Heart Attack. The film became a commercial hit despite initial divide talk.
