Prior to making his debut as an actor, Kapoor worked with film director David Dhawan as an assistant. Following this, he trained as an actor with Roshan Taneja and Mahendra Verma, in their acting school, and in dance with Nimesh Bhatt.[1] He made his debut in 2001 with Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai, a remake of Telugu super hit Tholi Prema, alongside Kareena Kapoor. He received the Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut for his work in the film. Although he was noted for acting alongside his father in the teen slasher film Kucch To Hai (2003), He was recognized for his role as a shy boy who gains the ability to become invisible in Gayab (2004).[2] [3][4]
