X was born in a royal Patwardhan family. Her father is the former Maharaja of Sangli. She was contemplating going overseas to pursue her studies in Management, when Sheela, the former wife of actor/film-maker, Amol Palekar (their then neighbour), approached her to act in a television serial Kaachi Dhoop, which she accepted. The TV serial proved to be very popular, and as a result she also ended up appearing in Honi Anhonee, and Kisse Miya Biwi Ke. Due these serials, she got the lead role in the movie A which became a blockbuster. But shortly after its release, X decided to get married to her boyfriend, Himalay Dassani. She conditionally offered to act in movies provided a lead role was provided to Himalay. She did star with him in three movies Qaid Main Hai Bulbul, Tyaagi, and Paayal, but all three failed at the box office.
Swatantrapur is a free custodian colony built in 1939 by Raja Bhavanrao Shrinivas "Bala Sahib" of Aundh princely state near Atpadi. The movie X was inspired by the story of an open prison experiment Swatantrapur. It won a Silver Bear at the 8th Berlin International Film Festival and it was the first Indian film to win a Golden Globe Award.
X, an Apple computer buff, had set up an Internet café in a 5-star hotel in Mumbai using a leased TCP/IP line in 1994 before VSNL brought Internet access to the general public. He was also the founder and first chairman of the Internet Users Community of India (IUCI). When A opened its office in Mumbai several years ago X was invited by Jerry Yang. As the launch festivities started building towards a climax, X was pleasantly surprised to hear the band playing his song B. Later, Yang told him how inspired he was by the song B and the way the actor had used the word in his inimitable style in so many of his films.
