She is a mechanical engineer, and she wanted to work in a private company. After trying her luck in private companies, she started looking at government offers. She wanted to be a probationary officer in a bank or an assistant section officer in the Odisha Government. Her maternal grandfather, Harihar Soren, was a Congress MP from the Keonjhar Constituency of Odisha in 1980 and 1984. She always wanted to get into politics, but it was a wish that she kept to herself.

Chandrani’s uncle, Harmohan Soren, suggested her to contest the Lok Sabha Elections. Chandrani thought he was joking and did not take his suggestion seriously, but her uncle talked to her about it the next day and she agreed. Her uncle was a social worker and knew many members of the BJD. He arranged a meeting with the Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik on 1 April 2019. On 2 April 2019, Naveen Patnaik announced her name as the BJD’s candidate from the Keonjhar Constituency. On 23 May 2019, it was declared that she won from the Keonjhar Constituency.
