In 2004, Tripathi participated in India's Best Cinestars Ki Khoj and ended up being in top 8 from Bhopal zone. She again contested from Indore zone where she was declared the runner up. This ensured her qualification for phase 2 of the contest where she lost eventually. [9] She was crowned Miss Bhopal.

Tripathi made her acting debut in telefilms for Doordarshan.[11] She received recognition for Zee TV's drama fiction Banoo Main Teri Dulhann by playing the dual roles of Vidya, an orphan and illiterate girl, and Divya, a modern and literate girl.[12] She won many awards for her performance in the show including the Indian Television Academy Award for Best Actress in Drama Category[13] and the Indian Telly Award for Fresh New Face.[14] She then featured in the second season of Star Plus's horror thriller Ssshhhh...Phir Koi Hai.[15] Later she played the role of Rashmi Sharma, a housewife in SAB TV's comedy drama Mrs. & Mr. Sharma Allahabadwale.[16]

Since 2013, she has portrayed the character of Dr. Ishita Bhalla, an infertile dentist who marries a Chief Executive Officer, in order to provide maternal affection to his daughter in Ekta Kapoor's show Ye Hai Mohabbatein opposite Karan Patel.[17][18] Her portrayal of Ishita won her many awards and nominations such as the Indian Telly Award for Best Actress in a Lead Role,[19] the Lions Gold Award for Best Actress in Lead Role, and the Boroplus Gold Award for Best Actress in a Lead Role.[20] In 2015, she received a Shan-E-Bhopal Award.[21] In 2016, she received two awards at the Gold Awards for Face of The Year and Best Actress in a Lead Role.[22]

In 2017, she participated in Nach Baliye 8 with her husband Vivek Dahiya and won the show.[5] On the show, she was injured and the audience accused her of a fake injury. However, she posted a video to provide evidence that the injury was real.[23]

In 2019, Tripathi hosted Star Plus's singing reality show The Voice 3.[24]

In the media

In 2017, Tripathi posted some emotional tweets condemning the rape of a 12-year-old girl in Chandigarh on Independence Day (15 August), some of which she addressed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, urging him to take strict action against the rapist.[25]

In 2014, Tripathi was ranked number 23 among the "35 Hottest Actresses In Indian Television" by MensXP.com, an Indian lifestyle website for men.[26] In 2017, she became the first Indian television actress who appeared in the Forbes Celebrity 100, a list based on the income and popularity of India's celebrities.[27][28]

In the same year, Tripathi was trolled for her character Haryanavi from the serial Yeh Hai Mohabbatein. She was called pathetic and disgusting for using dark brown makeup for this role. About this Tripathi replied to the troll by saying:

If I chose to be dark... How's it pathetic? Do you find it pathetic? You guys don't even think before bashing! Which Indian actor will voluntarily choose to look dark on screen? It's not usual!!!", "Know me first before judging! I'm doing that make up myself! Everyday! So please... Watch the track, understand and respect instead of writing baseless provocative comments![29]

Tripathi dated actor Sharad Malhotra, her co-actor from Banoo Main Teri Dulhann. They were in a relationship until 2015.[30]

On 16 January 2016, she got engaged to her Ye Hai Mohabbatein co-actor Vivek Dahiya.[31][32] The couple got married on 8 July 2016 in Bhopal.[33]
