She debuted in the Hindi film industry with the film Love Sonia in 2018 and then received popularity after playing a pivotal role in Super 30 and Batla House.

As per a News18 report, Reports have it that Aamir Khan had seen some of her clips from her serials. He had approached her with the role in ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ starring him, Amitabh Bachchan and Katrina Kaif. Mrunal Thakur even gave a screen test for the same but the role was later offered to Fatima Sana Shaikh. In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, the actress revealed her reason.

During the conversation, Mrunal Thakur said, “I had gone through the audition process. It was a lovely process, a great journey for 2-3 months.
