Before joining film industry Nupur was working in a hotel and casino at Goa . That hotel was owned by Gopal Goyal Kanda, a politician. Kanda was accused of Geetika Sharma suicide case. Geetika Sharma was a co worker of Nupur Mehta in that hotel. Geetika Sharma had also fired an FIR against Nupur Mehta for harassment earlier.
She was featured on the cover of one of India’s first Mills & Boons versions written by Astha Atray, His Monsoon Bride after being chosen in a model hunt contest,last year.

The London newspaper (Sunday Times), in a front-page article headed: "English cricket in bung scandal" said it had evidence that tens of thousands of pounds was being offered to players to throw part or all of international matches, including last year`s World Cup semi-final between India and Pakistan.
On this issue Nupur said to Zee News “I got a phone call from abroad. But I took it as a joke initially, but now it has become a serious matter. I am shocked. The allegations against me are baseless and there is no truth in it. Even though I am a big fan of cricket but I have no relation with cricket.”
After a couple of corporate jobs, she says she now freelances with Fulcrum Events, an event management company.
