She made her television debut in Kasautii Zindagii Kay as Gargi Tushar Bajaj. During the same time, Ekta Kapoor offered her the role of Astha in ‘Karam Apna Apna’. In the 2008 Bollywood film Tashan, she played the role of Parvati.
In the same year, she portrayed Annu, the main character, in the soap opera ‘Annu Ki Ho Gayee Waah Bhai Waah’. Mukta Raghuvendra Pratap Rathore, Tapasya’s daughter, plays the lead role in ‘Uttaran’, which she landed in 2012. As far as Sreejita’s career is concerned, Uttaran was a game changer.

Cold War between Tina Datta and Sreejita
As Tina Datta and Sreejita played Meethi and Mukta in Uttaran, the argument over who would be the lead actress sparked a cold war between them. Tina had talked about the same in an interview with the media at that time and stated the following:
The show has been running for the last six years, and everyone knows it is about two actresses Meethi (Tina Datta) and Tapasya (Rashami Desai), and therefore, it revolves around me. In response to Tina’s claim that she should be credited with the show’s female lead, Sreejita stated:
“It is impossible for a show to run with only one actor. In spite of the fact that Damini, Jogi, Nani, and Divya have all contributed to the show, they are never even mentioned. An actor with experience understands that a show cannot be handled by a single individual. Anyone who asserts that the show is all about them is extremely immature and childish.”
The Bigg Boss called Tina Datta and Sreejita De to the confession room on the first day of Bigg Boss 16, where he asked them to resolve their differences. While Tina clearly referred to their fight as a matter of ‘petty issues’, Sreejita described Tina as dominating.
In the house, it will be interesting to see if Tina and Sreejita’s relationship improves or deteriorates.

Facts About Sreejita De
- Initially, Sreejita intended to be a journalist; however, one of her friends suggested that she consider a career in acting. Later, she auditioned for a cameo role in the Hindi television series Kasautii Zindagii Kay, and was immediately selected.
- During a media interview, Sreejita discussed this and stated, “For me, it occurred very early on in my life.”. At the time, I was only 18 and a half years old and studying at Ruia College in Mumbai, and I had little interest in acting. Despite my love of dancing, I was never inclined to pursue a career in acting. When I was chatting with my friend, he told me there was an audition taking place at Balaji and they suggested we go and check it out. At that point, I decided to give acting a try and I have never looked back since. As a result, I decided to pursue acting as a career.”

- During a media interview in 2022, she discussed her participation in Big Boss 16 and stated that she joined the show in order to gain recognition.
- The actress stated, “As an actor, you play characters that are written for you by scriptwriters, which we definitely enjoy, but your fans and your audience have never had the opportunity to experience your true self.” This is why I absolutely love Bigg Boss. It is like you are your own scriptwriter, you write your own character and show it to the audience. This is why I absolutely love Bigg Boss.”
