After appearing in a couple of advertisements and in uncredited cameo roles in the films Soggadu and Panduranga Vittala, she got her first starring role in Ganda Hendathi. Her first release, however, became the low-budget Tamil film, Oru Kadhal Seiveer, which met with negative reviews and poor box office returns. S R Ashok Kumar of The Hindu noted that Sanjjanaa, then credited under her birth name, was "beautiful but has to work on her acting". Ganda Hendathi, a Kannada remake of the Hindi film Murder (2004), itself an adaptation of the Hollywood film Unfaithful (2002), was also panned by critics. The film was released in Telugu as Mogudu Pellam O Boy Friend. Sanjjanaa's performance drew mixed reviews, with a reviewer from claiming that she "utterly fails to deliver" in the emotional sequences, while Sify wrote "Sanjjanaa has made a decent debut and she is extremely daring and does justice to her role". In 2008, she made her Telugu film debut in Puri Jagannadh's Bujjigadu, in which she played a notable role alongside Prabhas and Trisha Krishnan. Although her role was small, the film gained her considerable attention and helped her growing in popularity. In 2010, she was first seen in the Telugu film Police Police, which was followed by a cameo role in Huduga Hudugi. Her final release of that year was Mylari that featured her opposite Shivrajkumar. It was the biggest milestone in her Kannada career as she was subsequently flooded with offers in Kannada cinema. Regarding her performance in the film, the Times of India wrote that she "shines in her lively and mischievous role". She won the Bangalore Times Award for Best Actor in a Negative Role Female in 2012 for I Am Sorry Mathe Banni Preethsona.
