She then released 4 more Hindi Pop albums entitled “Dhuan”, “ Talaash”, “Ab Ke Baras” and “ Waqt”.The song and the video of “Paree Hoon Main” from the album “Dhuan” made Suneeta Rao a household name, thus leading the press to affectionately crown her the "Paree of the Masses".
She is actively involved and is the spokesperson of an initiative called "Laadli" organized by an NGO called Population First, started by her uncle, Bobby Sista, whose main agenda is "Saving the Girl Child". The music video “Sun Zara” was sponsored by UNFPA, for the same cause.
