Early life



Trivedi started acting since childhood. As a child artist, she acted in Hindi serials like Hamrahi and Zee Horror Show in small cameo roles. In 1994, she acted in Prakash Jha's telefilm Didi which focused on education of female children in rural areas. After taking a gap for studies in class 10th and 12th, Trivedi returned to acting as a teenager and did Gujarati theatre for some years. She received appreciation for her acting skills from the Gujarati audiences.

Her major theatre background helped her in getting many acting offers from television channels. She got her first break for a small role in a daily soap Babul Ki Duwayen Leti Jaa which aired on Zee TV. Thereafter, she did cameos & supporting roles in few shows like Dil Chaahta Hai and Kumkum- Ek Pyra Sa Bandhan. She also acted in the popular comedy sitcom Khichdi which was the first show produced by Hats Off Productions. Despite the popularity of the show, Trivedi would not appear in its second season Instant Khichdi because she would be committed to other projects.

Later in 2005, Trivedi auditioned for Kituu Sab Janti Hai on the insistence of a coordinator. She didn't even have her photographs taken for self-promotion but she impressed them and managed to get a call back in two days. She won the lead role of Kittu in the show. She was chosen among 40–45 girls based on her talent. It was the breakthrough point of her career.
