Sharma started her career at the age of 9. She performed in Gopal Yonzan's song in front of the late King Birendra on his birthday.[citation needed]

She was first screened in the film Biswas directed by Chetan Karki for a role of a dance teacher which widened her path in the Nepali film industry. Her role as "Gita" in Mask of Desire took her to the international film industry.[5] Her works in films like Mukundo, Sukha Dukha, Didi, Muna Madan, Basai and Afno Manchhe are still well received which are also Sharma's favourites. She has always given preference to the character roles rather than the commercial lead roles in her film career.
