How Dolly Singh became famous?

She made clothing hack videos, accessory and apparel shopping videos, budgeted styling videos, etc. As a part of her graduation project, Dolly Singh did an internship with ‘iDiva,’ an online platform for Indian women offering style and beauty tips, relationship advice, entertainment news and celebrity gossip.
After the completion of her internship with iDiva, they offered her the job of a writer. Although she wanted to be a stylist, she took the job. During those days, Facebook gave iDiva a contract for making videos. As iDiva was short of actors, all the employees did multi-tasking. Dolly started off with being a producer and writer, but eventually ended up as an actor.
Initially, the employees faced a lot of hardship while shooting videos, but soon, they got the hang of it. After two years, the director of iDiva, Santu Misra, came up with the idea of making videos about stereotypical ‘South Delhi Girls.’ Dolly Singh, along with her co-actress, Kusha Kapila, starred in the video series and rose to fame. The ‘South Delhi Girls’ series was the golden milestone in Dolly’s life, with which she gained immense popularity. After the ‘South Delhi Girls’ series, there was no looking back. Later, she portrayed various other characters in her videos, such as ‘Zeenat,’ ‘Mrs. Kapoor,’ ‘Natasha,’ ‘Reckless Renu,’ ‘Guddi Bhabi,’ ‘Bubbly,’ etc.
Dolly Singh has collaborated and produced videos with several Bollywood celebrities, such as Priyanka Chopra, Ayushmann Khurrana, Kangana Ranaut, Kareena Kapoor, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Pankaj Tripathi, etc. She interviews them while playing her famous character ‘Raju Ki Mummy.’
