She became very popular thanks to her bold avatar in her debut film 'RX 100'. She was flooded with offers and became the talk of the town. Unfortunately, none of her films succeeded at the box-office after that. She did a guest appearance in NTR biopic and did an item song in director Teja's 'Sita'. Both of them failed badly at the box-office. It is good not to talk about the result of her 'RDX Love'. This film is utter crap and made Payal look like a B-grade heroine.
All her hopes are on 'Venky Mama' and 'Disco Raja'. Only the success of these films can help her career. She is not the solo heroine in both these films. Raashi Khanna is sure to dominate her in 'Venky Mama' and 'Ismart' girl Nabha may attract more youngsters than Payal in 'Disco Raja'. Let us see if she gets her success and survive in TFI or not.
