However, the first movie in which she signed up to enact the role of the leading lady was Priyadarshan's "Leysa Leysa". A string of flops marked the beginning of her career, such as "Manasellam", and "Alai". However she was well suited for her role opposite Surya in Mounam Pesiyadhe and won critical acclaim. She is well acclaimed for her facial expressions while acting. She then played Vikram's lady love in the mega blockbuster "Saamy". The next huge film she took part in followed immediately afterwards, was "Ghilli" with Vijay, which was a remake of Telugu blockbuster Okkadu.

In 2004, she starred in "Varsham" in Telugu which went on to become the biggest hit of the year and turned her into an overnight sensation. In 2005, she starred alongside Siddharth Narayan in the telugu flick "Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana" as the village girl "Siri". The movie is about a rich boy, who tries to marry a girl - however her brother opposes. It is directed by Prabhu Deva, was successful at the box office [ [ Latest from Tollywood] (9 January 2005). TotalHollywood. Accessed 2008-04-05.] Krishnan won 2 awards for the film which include the "Filmfare Award" and "Nandi Award".

She appeared in Mani Ratnam's "Aayitha Ezhuthu" which was remade into a hit Hindi movie "Yuva". The Tamil version included Siddharth Narayan, Madhavan and Surya. Her later movies, "Ji", "Aathi" and "Aaru" did not do well - though "Aaru" was received well by critics and both dubbed in "Tamil" and "Telugu" and produced by Saran, who had previously directed several successful movies. [ [ Andhra Pradesh] (December 10, 2005). "The Hindu". Accessed 2008-04-05.] Her 2006 Telugu movie, "Pournami", directed by Prabhu Deva, was a flop. However, another 2006 film, "Something Something ... Unnakum Ennakum", where Krishnan acted opposite Jayam Ravi, did well at the box office. "Something Something ... Unnakum Ennakum" is a remake of the Telugu movie, "Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana" where she plays the same role.

Her Telugu film "Sainikudu" with Mahesh Babu was released on November 30, 2006. There were high expectations in the trade circles from this film especially after the smashing hit Pokiri, but this high budget film started off with below average reviews. Despite receiving bad reviews from the film trade, the film managed to get a decent opening in India and overseas.

Her next release after Sainikudu was "Aadavari Matalaku Ardhalu Verule" where she was cast opposite Venkatesh. This film was Selvaraghavan's first film in Telugu. The film released on April 27, 2007.
