Dam was born in Kolkata, West Bengal to a Bengali family. Her father and mother are Amol and Papiya Dam (mother) and she has a brother, Mainak.
Dam attended Loreto School in Bowbazar before passing her Higher Secondary Examination. She was a good student, winning scholarships. Dam was admitted to Vidyasagar College of the University of Calcutta, graduating with a degree in chemistry. She earned a postgraduate degree in chemistry from Rajabazar Science College of the University of Calcutta.
Becoming an actress was not a childhood dream: "I learnt classical dance and was into theatre from an early age. But I never aspired to be an actor". Initially, she wanted to become a chemical researcher or a pilot. Like other Bengali children, during her childhood Dam also took singing lessons.
