She was best known for her film career during the 1960s and 1970s, where she first became a star in native Yugoslavia before moving to Italy where she achieved considerable success.

Lončar got involved with performing at an early age through speaking bits in kids' programs on Belgrade television. She studied acting under the tutelage of director Soja Jovanović who gave Lončar an uncredited bit part in 1960's “Diližansa snova”. She would go on to appear in over 50 films between 1960 and 1982.
