Saloni made her acting debut in 2013 in a short film titled The Unnamed Crime. She then turned to television and appeared in three episodes of the sitcom Life Sahi Hai. Her role as Neha was well-received in the show. After appearing in a short film titled Love at First Sight, Saloni made her feature film debut in 2018 with Ivan Ayer’s drama film Soni. In the film, she played the role of a police officer named Kalpana.

The actress revealed that she read the script multiple times to understand the world it inhabited. Soni premiered at the 75th Venice Film Festival and was screened at many film festivals to universal acclaim. Both the film and her performance met with strong reviews. It was also one of the five features to be selected by the National Film Development Corporation, as a part of the ‘Work in Progress’ Lab at the 2017 Film Bazaar..
