Mamta grew up in Bahrain and did her schooling there. She continued her college education in Bangalore.

That was when she was spotted by well known filmmaker Hariharan for his Malayalam film Mayookham. Mayookham didn't do that well but Mamta was noticed.

Mamta has acted with all the Malayalam superstars. Her explosive scenes with Suresh Gopi in Lanka shocked the Malayali audience when it released in 2006. It was followed by rumours of an affair with Suresh Gopi, which almost wrecked his married life.

She then moved to the Telugu film industry where she got interesting roles. Music directors like Devi Sri Prasad made use of her singing ability in playback singing -- she is a trained Carnatic and Hindustani singer.
