The critically acclaimed movie saw her fetching the Best Female Debut Award in the Zee Cine Awards of 2013.   She was then roped in by her husband to be Mohit Suri for the suspense thriller flick Zaher. Goswami made much news with the movie by appearing in highly exposing posters for the movie and caught Bollywood off guard. The Emraan Hashmi starrer narrated the story of a series of mishaps and deceptions which happen in the life of a cop saw Goswami playing his infidel partner who suffers from cancer. The film in which she has delivered a matured performance.  After a special appearance in Dil Diya Hai, she was once again cast as the heroine by Anant Mahadevan in the Tushar Kapoor starrer musical thriller flick Aggar: Passion,Betrayel, Terror in 2007.  The movie which also featured Shreyas Talpade narrated the story of girl who discovers the adverse consequences of falling for the wrong man and had Goswami sweeping away the honours getting well under the skin of the character. The movie saw her adding to her repute of only being part of quirky, over the top thrillers.   Return after hiatus and other films ( 2009-2010)   Udita Goswami however took a two year break from Bollywood and returned with the Arshad Warsi starrer Kisse Pyaar Karon which did not fare well. Then she was seen in Deepak Tijori’s thriller flick Fox which consisted of an ensemble star cast consisting of Arjun Rampal, Sunny Deol, Sagarika Ghatge and many more.   Udita Goswami was seen playing a publishing house editor in the gritty thriller which narrated the story of a corrupted criminal lawyer who sets out to find redemption from his past life. However the movie too could not make much fuss and did not go down well with the critics section too and ended up a major underperformer. Goswami in the years 2009 and 2010 signed up for two films The Man and Hello India both of which got delayed. Udita thus was seen in a major role in Jagmohan Mundhra’s action flick Chase which had actors like Anuj Saxena, Sameer Kochchar and Tareena Patel playing pivotal parts along with her. The disastrously low fairing movie too could not revive her career at that point of time and continued her poor run.   She made a friendly appearance in Anupam  Kher starrer thriller film Apartment in 2010 in which she was once again noticed. Udita was then cast as one of the leading women in Suraj Shukla starrer horror thriller Rokkk which also had Tanusree Dutta as the other female lead. The movie had her playing one among two sisters who goes through terrifying supernatural experiences one by one. However the movie too bombed miserably and at this point Goswami’s career fell and looked bleak.   Recent films ( 2012)   Due to a constant string of grossly under performing movies piling up to her name Goswami was yet again forced to take a sabbatical from Hindi cinema and could only return after a two year gap in the year 2012 with the Sunil Shetty starrer comedy flick Mere Dost Picture Abhi Baki Hai. The movie which narrated the story of a man struggling to be a filmmaker had her playing an acting star.
