The same year, she also starred in the thriller ‘Aitraaz’, portraying her first role as an antagonist, and received much critical acclaim for her performance.

In 2005, she appeared in two successful ventures, ‘Waqt: The Race Against Time’ and ‘Bluffmaster’. In 2006, she starred in the superhero film ‘Krrish’, and the action-thriller ‘Don’. Both the films were declared worldwide box-office successes. In the following years, she appeared in several movies including ‘Big Brother (2007), ‘Love Story 2050’ (2008), and ‘Drona’ (2008).

In late 2008, she appeared in the movie ‘Fashion’, a drama about the Indian fashion industry. Both, the film and her performance received much appreciation from the critics. She followed this with the comedy ‘Dostana’ which was also a financial success. In 2011, she starred as a femme fatale in the black comedy ‘7 Khoon Maaf’ which garnered her much acclaim from critics.
