In 2011, she made her Kannada film debut in Govindaya Namaha which went on to become one of the highest grossing films of that year. She played the role of Mumtaz, a Muslim girl falling in love with Govinda played by Komal Kumar. Her portrayal won her a SIIMA Best Debutant award (2013) and Bangalore Times Best Newcomer Award (2013) and a nomination in the Udaya Film Awards for the best actor category for that year. The song "Pyarge Aagbittaite" featuring her went viral on the internet sites and propelled her stardom. The same pairing in the 2012 film Nandeesha, however, could not continue the success at the box-office. Parul Yadav won the 'Glamour Icon of the Year' award given away by Suvarna TV channel.

Parul's next project was for the multi-starrer film Bachchan directed by Shashank and starring Sudeep. Yadav then starred in Shivajinagara, produced by Ramu Films. She was paired opposite Duniya Vijay. The movie was a blockbuster having completed 100 days of screening in theatres.

M. Chaitanya's Aatagara featuring an ensemble cast and Jessie. Her performance in Jessie won her widespread appreciation. Upcoming films of Parul include Seizer and Vijayaditya.

Parul's biggest movie of her career is Killing Veerappan, directed in multiple languages by the talented film-maker Ram Gopal Varma. The movie also marks Parul's official entry into Bollywood. Killing Veerappan is about the circumstances that led to the killing of dreaded forest brigand Veerappan.
