Disha started her acting career with the Telugu film Loafer (2015) opposite Varun Tej. She gained recognition for her role in the sports biopic MS Dhoni: The Untold Story (2016). Since then, she has featured in several films including Kung Fu Yoga (2017), Baaghi 2 (2018), Bharat (2019), Malang and Baaghi 3 (2020) and Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai (2021). Ranbir made his acting debut with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's tragic romance Saawariya (2007) alongside Sonam Kapoor. Disha is rumoured to be dating actor Tiger Shroff ever since they starred together in Baaghi 2.
Speaking with Pinkvilla, Disha said about Ranbir, “When I was in school, I was a huge fan, and I almost got into so many accidents because I used to see his poster. In my city, there was a huge poster of his. I think he was endorsing some brand and I used to just stare at it, and ride my scooty, and I just bumped into so many things while doing that.” When asked if she told him about her crush, Disha replied 'not really but I will'.
About her role in Ek Villain Returns, Disha also said, “I feel as an artist, there is much more that I can do with a grey character, over a white, or a black, or whatever. Like a hero, hero. I have grown up watching thrillers, and action (films) all my life, and I feel like all those movies that I had seen when I was younger and till now, I felt I could bring something from those and put it into my character, and make my own thing out of it."
Disha is awaiting the release of her film Ek Villain Returns, helmed by Mohit Suri. Apart from Disha, the film also features Arjun Kapoor, John Abraham, and Tara Sutaria. It is slated to release on July 29.
She is also a part of Nag Ashwin's upcoming film Project K. The film also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, and Prabhas and is touted as a sci-fi thriller. Disha is also a part of the action thriller film Yodha, which also stars Sidharth Malhotra and Rashi Khanna.
