The actress was born in a Jatt Sikh family in Punjab on 9 December 1977 to an Army man.
Priya was discovered by actress and producer Jaya Bachchan for Tere Mere Sapne (1996) where she was seen alongside Arshad Warsi and Chandrachur Singh.

In Josh (2000) Priya was seen opposite superstar Shahrukh Khan. Priya was also seen as a waitress named Piya in Bade Dilwala (1999) opposite Suniel Shetty.
