She got her big break in Tamil film industry when she acted in Thala Ajith Kumar’s Yennai Arindhaal. She played a negative role pairing opposite to Arun Vijay. Her role of a vengeful wife in Yennai Arindhaal won praise from critics and fans alike. She then featured in Kamal Haasan’s Uttama Villain. She then played the lead in the first Tamil production of Eros International, the period film Enkitta Mothathe. Her next release was the Tamil film Koditta Idangalai Nirappuga directed by R Parthiepan with Shanthanu Bhagyaraj as male lead in which her performance stood out and was widely appreciated. Then she went on to play on of the leads in Udayanidhi Stalin’s Nimir which released in 2018. She hasn’t got a solid offer to showcase her acting skills in the recent past. Meanwhile, the actress has now shared a photo that was captured by Ajith Kumar while shooting for Yennai Arindhaal. She has posted the photo for the viral trending Black and White Challenge. The campaign follows an outcry against a number of high-profile honor killings in Iran over the last two months. The term is used for murder cases in which women are killed by relatives who claim to be preserving a family's honor. The Instagram campaign also has quickly gained traction in India as well. 
Parvathy Nair’s post reads as follows: “Thank u you so much Ajith sir for capturing this wonderful picture!! I was wondering why this "Challenge accepted" became so viral and impactful, that is when I started reading about it. The black & white challenge incepted in Turkey, where the campaign is associated with raising awareness about femicide in the country. Those women in Turkey are getting frustrated over seeing b&w photos of murdered women in the media almost every day, and by posting b&w photos of themselves, it makes the point that anyone of us could be next. I believe it is never too late to say #challengeaccepted because every single day women go through a lot of miseries that none of us could imagine and I feel fortunate to live a life with people, especially women filled with positivity, courage, and pride. It's because of all women who have played an important part in my life for who I am today. My complete strength and power to those women out there who face their difficulties. Let's get back and NOT give up!”
