Career

After graduating, Malhotra participated in the dance reality show Dance India Dance and made it to the top 100. She moved to Mumbai, where she began appearing in auditions and began assisting camerapersons for television commercials. Later, she did an advertisement for ₹5,000 (US$72) and after a year, casting director Mukesh Chhabra called for an audition. She was selected for Nitesh Tiwari’s biographical sports film Dangal along with Fatima Sana Shaikh, who was also relatively new.

Before the film, Malhotra said that she did not know much about wrestling and had not seen any match. She then watched several videos on wrestling and “how wrestlers move, walk, their body language” and also did the training. Both Malhotra and Sheikh went through five rounds of auditions, physical training, and workshops with Tiwari and Aamir Khan. They were trained by coach and former wrestler Kripa Shankar Patel Bishnoi. Upon release, Dangal received critical acclaim and a strong commercial success, becoming the highest-grossing Indian film of 2017. Anupama Chopra said in her review that Malhotra provides “strong support” to the story. She also choreographed the song “Sexy Baliye” from Secret Superstar (2017), which featured Khan.

After a gap of two years, it appeared in Vishal Bhardwaj’s comedy-drama Pataakha, alongside debutant Radhika madan . Based on the short story Do Behnen by Charan Singh Pathik, the story revolved around two sisters in Rajasthan who are always on conflict. The story was based on the wives of Pathik’s brothers. Both Madan and Malhotra met the real women for the dialect and the character’s nuances. For the preparation, both Malhotra and Madan stayed in Ronsi village near Jaipur and learned the Rajasthani dialect; they also got accustomed with milking buffaloes, thatching roofs, plastering the walls with dung and walking for long distances while balancing matkas full of water on their head and one around their waist. They also had to put on 10 kg of weight. Raja Sen in his review wrote that Malhotra “plays this character with unhinged enthusiasm” and “appears to be a fearless actress.” Malhotra’s next release was the comedy film Badhaai Ho, co-starring Ayushmann Khurrana, which is about a middle-aged couple’s pregnancy. The film proved to be a critical and commercial success.

In 2019, Malhotra appeared in Ritesh Batra’s romance Photograph alongside . The film follows a street photographer Rafi, who tries to convince Miloni (Malhotra) to pose as his fiancee so that his grandmother stops pressuring him to get married. It was screened at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival and at the 69th Berlin International Film Festival. The Hollywood Reporter featured her in their listing of breakout talent from the latter festival. Rahul Desai of Film Companion gave Photograph a positive review and wrote that Malhotra “becomes the dreamy-eyed participant that enables the film to embrace its quiet glances and gentle flights of fantasy.”
