Iniya won the Miss Trivum title in 2005, following which she did modeling and appeared in several television advertisements as well as a number of Malayalam award-winning art films, including Saira (2006), directed Dr. Biju, Dalamarmarangal (2009) and Umma (2011), both directed by Vijayakrishnan. She also played a pivotal role in Rajesh Touchriver\'s short feature The Sacred Face, which focusses on child abuse.According to her she says that cinema includes the meaning of glamour, action and love. Iniya was introduced to Tamil cinema from the movie padasalai but vagai soodava is the movie showed her acting skills to the audience. After that she did several movies and she couldnt get any chance after doing a ghost movie where she plays the ghost, thanks to her height.
