This was instrumental in nurturing his mind as a child to look at life through a much broader perspective, a contemporary outlook and therefore established a futuristic vision. The city of Bangalore is culturally oriented and caters to a cosmopolitan crowd, hence growing up in this environment helped him to get exposed to art, culture, architecture and theatre. Since childhood, Dhirajj Vinodd Kapoor was always keen in participating in dramatics, acting, fancy dress and dancing competitions. This resulted in developing his passionate interest in the world of cinema.[5] Dhirajj is a linguist with fluency in many languages such as English, Hindi, Punjabi, Kannada, Tamil, and Urdu. He was an athlete and played almost every sport and won accolades and trophies in intra- and inter-school competitions. He was the Vice-Captain for the Karnataka State Basketball Team and was the House Captain in his 10th grade.[citation needed]

In his early[8] 20s Dhirajj moved away from his well-established family retail business to pursue his passion and interest in the movies and entertainment industry. It was his latent entrepreneurial streak that challenged him to start[9] LIMELIGHT in the millennium year with his close friend.

In the year 2005, to expand further, he moved to Mumbai, establishing himself nationally and internationally as a producer.[10] International experience always excited him, therefore in 2014 he moved to Los Angeles to understand the futuristic ways of work in the dynamic digitised world, more into content creation and aggregation.
