She was also seen in roles in films such as Meeruthiya Gangsters (2015), Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 (2015), Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety (2018), Yaaram (2019), and Jai Mummy Di (2019). In 2021, she did another film with director Luv Ranjan titled ‘Wild Wild Punjab.’
The 32 year old actress has somehow managed to get recognition by films and also by dance numbers in the industry. She appeared in the Bollywood movie ‘Prassthanam’ for an item song ‘Dil Bevda; in 2019. She also appeared in a Punjabi music video ‘Loaded’ that was sung by Ninja.
The Pyar Ka Punchnama actress was awarded with Big Star Most Entertaining Ensemble Cast Award. In 2018, she won Best supporting actress for Sonu ke titu ki sweety at TIIFA.
In an interview, she expressed that her acting career got boom after Sonu ke Titu ki Sweety. She said, “I’m happy that people noticed me. The reaction I’ve got after SKTKS is way more than both the Punchnama films (combined).”
She also revealed that even after getting famous as an actor she won’t leave modelling because modelling is her passion. In fact, she started her career in the industry by modelling for various brands.
When asked about no versatility in the kind of roles she does, she answered, “That’s because I worked with the same director in these films. When I’d work with other people, of course I’d do different characters. I don’t have a godfather or any backing and, so I know I have to prove a lot. As an actor, my job is to play different roles, styles and people onscreen. I want to channel my talent and tap into that field where I can play a very sweet naive girl to a village girl to a vamp. I want people to say that this girl has guts to adapt into any character.”
Ishita Raj and her two siblings have been brought up by her mother Meenu Sharma. She is grateful to her mother for supporting her throughout.
