Kirron started her career in the year 1983 with a Punjabi movie Aasra Pyaar Da, which slipped down the silver screen without a trace, paving path for her first onscreen recognition from the movie Pestonjee (1988).

In the year 2003, playing the role of Sumrita, woman full of life and joy, stuck to the basic roots of the societal regimes but supports the love of her daughter Paro (Aishwarya Rai Bachhan), in Devdas (2002) helped her win the IIFA Best Supporting Actress Award.

Moving on, in the year 2006, Rang De Basanti crowned her with Star Screen Award Best Supporting Actress.

Next came, Karan Johar's Main Hoon Na, which added another feather to Kirron's cap as she flawlessly played the role of a casual yet caring mother.

Recently movies like Dostana and Total Siyapaa have unveiled a comic side of Kirron to the masses. She has entertained the viewers with her fabulous expressions and rib tickling punches.

As she dons these qualities in her along with a polished leader and a caring family person, HT wishes her all the best for her future projects.
