Verma graduated from the University of Galați with a master's degree in engineering. During her early days in college, she appeared on national and European TV channels as the host of several talk shows. She also performed at events as a celebrity in Romania. In the modelling world, she won the Miss Romania title and was the most sought after model in Romania. After leaving modelling, she joined Atlas Telecom Network Romania, a mobile service provider, and was appointed the Deputy General Manager of Bucharest operations. Upon her marriage to Abhishek Verma in 2006, she became his lieutenant in his global weapons trade and defense supplies business; in 2011 she bought into 51% equity and was appointed the Managing Director of SIG SAUER India, a joint venture with the multinational weapons contractor. Also in 2011, she and her husband entered into a joint venture and in 2016 launched Olialia Cola, cigarettes, vodkas, and Bollywood films in India and commenced the Olialia Island Resort project in the Maldives.
Verma and her husband have been accused of corruption and money laundering and were arrested by the CBI for supposedly bribing Indian defense officials in order to secure billion-dollar weapons contracts. On 8 June 2012 they were both imprisoned in Tihar Jail, Delhi.
Verma's bail plea was rejected by the Delhi High Court in March 2015, but on 20 May 2016 the court granted her bail after four years in prison. According to Indian investigators, their attempts to freeze Verma's offshore bank accounts in the tax haven of Principality of Liechtenstein had been unsuccessful as the Liechtenstein government rejected the request from Enforcement Directorate India, calling it a 'fishing expedition' as no charges had been brought forward that could constitute a criminal offence in Liechtenstein or the European Union.
