As Sanajana Sanghi is all set to make her debut in B Town as a leading lady with the film Dil Bechara, we now see her as not a stranger in Hindi Cinema. The fact is she has been appearing in Bollywood films in smaller roles. One can find her in Imtiaz Ali’s film Rockstar in 2011. She played the role of Mandy, Nargis Fakhri’s younger sister. While talking about her debut in B Town as a leading star, she said, Mukesh Chhabra wanted a new face for his film Dil Bechara.
She further said that the director had seen her in school when she was 13 and was performing on stage in her Delhi based school performance. He then asked for an audition then and there. He then made her appear in Rockstar in the film. Later, she was seen in 2017 in the film Hindi Medium with late actor Irrfan Khan. She played the younger role of Saba Qamar. At that time, she was in her third year college. She had said the same in her long Instagram post about the role and film. Check it out as under:

•May 19, 2017• That’s a clipping from the theatres of the first day first show of Hindi Medium, on May 19th, 3 years ago. I could never have imagined that 3 years later – May 19th 2020 would be a day we’d be in a world without Irrfan Sir, and with theatres shut globally. The oddity of our current times, sometimes really does frighten me. Regardless! Here’s celebrating 3 years of this beautiful film. 🧡 Forever grateful for being such a small part of such a beautiful story. I was a 3rd year student in Delhi University when I shot for Hindi Medium, and the thought of just expanding my horizons as a performer by being around such inspirational artists meant the world to me, teaching me that no part as an actor is too big or small. I’m glad I made time away from the academic pressure of writing my thesis in the final year of college, and went ahead and did this. Saved myself from a huge regret I’d have carried with myself forever. Films go on to become journeys so special, that they simply can’t be beaten down by trying to quantify each artist’s, technician’s, and contributor’s part to play in creating it. In loving memory. #WeMissYouIrrfan #3YearsOfHindiMedium
Later, the actress was seen in Fukrey Returns as well with a small role in it playing Katty. Remember the lady who comes in the first scene with Varun Sharma. The film had Pulkit Samrat, Richa Chadha, and Ali Fazal in the leading roles. Besides, she also appeared in a couple of commercials for a few brands like Close-Up, Samsung and Tanishq to name a few.
