Mayuri got a lot of popularity from Mahesh Bhatt’s film ‘Papa Kehte Hain’. The song ‘Ghar Se Nikalte Hi, Kuch Door Chalte Hi’ from this film became a super hit. Jugal Hansraj was with Mayuri in the film. ‘Badal’ with Bobby Deol and Rani Mukherjee, ‘Kurbaan’ with Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor and ‘Jung’ with Sanjay Dutt, Shilpa Shetty and Jackie Shroff. She was last seen in the film ‘Jeetenge Hum’ in 2001.
MBA from America

After completing her studies, Mayuri took up the position of Managing Director at the digital media agency Performix. She lived in America from 2004 to 2012.
Came to India for children
Mayuri Congo returned to India in 2012. He says that after having children, he felt that he needed the support of family for the upbringing of children and for his career growth.

Mayuri says that she never gave up studies. This is the reason why they are at this stage today. He says that people should first complete their studies and then think of making a career in films. A heroine’s career in Bollywood is hardly 10 years. That’s why it is important to have a backup plan.
