In 2010, she was signed on to portray a lead role in A. L. Vijay's Tamil drama film Deiva Thirumagal, portraying the role of a six year old daughter whose father was a mentally challenged adult with the maturity of a six-year-old boy. The film opened to critical and commercial acclaim, with Sara's performance receiving unanimous praise from film critics.

Sara was one and a half years old when she shot for her first commercial after she was spotted at a mall with her parents and subsequently Sara has appeared in sixty ad films for brands including McDonalds. She made her feature film debut with the Hindi film 404 which saw her play a minor role as the daughter of the character played by Tisca Chopra. Sara did a commercial for director Vijay when she was two but he then lost touch with Sara's family, before he met them and cast Sara in his drama film, Deiva Thirumagal, following a visit to Mumbai. Her parents helped Sara learn the Tamil dialogues for the film by asking their Tamil friend, Maheswari, to assist them. The film's crew later remarked that Sara had also learnt Vikram's dialogues in the film and tried to help him during the shoot. Upon release, the film became a critical and commercial success with Sara's performance of Nila becoming unanimously praised by film critics. The critic from Behindwoods.com claimed that it was Sara "who steals the show next only to Vikram in her angelic looks and performance" and added that "there is a serene look about her which warrants accolades". Similarly another critic cites that "Sara as Nila almost steals the show as Vikram's daughter", whilst the reviewers from CNN-IBN mentioned that Sara is "charm personified and she handles her role in an amazing manner". Her father claimed that Sara was unfazed by the publicity and once in her hotel room, she returned to her daily routine of "asking for her eraser, sharpener and colour pencils".

She has recently signed a film for Vipul Shah's production house and is also a part of Tomorrow directed by Amjad Khan, in which her father also stars.

Sara's father Raj Arjun is also an actor and has appeared in several Hindi language films including Kaalo, Shabri and will be seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Rowdy Rathore. Her mother Sanya is a dance teacher and both her parents were originally from Bhopal, but her parents made Mumbai as their base since 2000.
