Shraddha has also starred in several south films like Kalvanin Kadhali, Godava, Kothi Muka, and more, and some Punjabi films too. However, in 2011, the actress turned to television with a full-fledged role in the television show Main Lakshmi Tere Aangan Ki. With this she got recognition and with her next two shows, Tumhari Paakhi and Dream Girl, both of which were hits, Shraddha established herself as a star in the television industry. She is now a part of one of the longest-running television shows, Kundali Bhagya. 

The actress is not only a star but is also one of the highest-paid actresses on television competing with the likes of Rupali Ganguly, Hina Khan, Jennifer Winget, and others.
