The reigning Pan-Asian champion from India, Ishani is easy on the eyes, but ruthless in the skies. Thanks to her high-speed competitiveness and notable talent, she has amazed more than a billion loyal fans—including one rookie racer who turns to her for guidance. Exotic and mysterious, Ishani is full of surprises, but always has her eye on the prize.Ishani is a strong, spirited and talented racer. She is very focused on winning, but this does not mean that she can't care about other racers. Ishani is nice to Dusty Crophopper, and took a liking of him.
In the film, Dusty runs into her in the pits. They have a decent conversation and some little flirting. In the second stage of the race Ishani was seen having a discussion about the next race with Ripslinger in Oil Hall with something she doesn't seem comfortable with. Ishani took Dusty around Taj Mahal, and gave him advice about using the railroad tracks serving as an iron compass.
After Dusty got to Nepal in first place in the wake of nearly getting killed by an oncoming train, Dusty tells her about her new propeller. He figures out that Ishani conspired against him with Ripslinger when he saw her with a Sky Slycer Mark Five propeller that was only used for Team RPX and given by Ripslinger as compensation for doing his dirty work. Dusty was broken hearted with Ishani for setting him up and broke up with her, despite her saying that she hadn't wanted him to get hurt. Though later on in Mexico, she felt guilty of doing so and redeemed herself, so she confronted Ripslinger about Dusty's disappearance saying that Dusty has ten times the integrity than him. She says that Ripslinger used to be a great champion. But now she hates Ripslinger for his self-centeredness and arrogance.
The next morning she apologized to Dusty for doing Ripslinger's dirty work. She gives Dusty her Sky Slicer Mark 5 propeller in return. She attends to still win the race but with her old propeller that her new one didn't suit her. At the end, Ishani congratulates Dusty on his big win and now that the world has a new champion and he's also her champion. It is currently unknown if they are in a relationship.
