Before starting off his career as an actor, Kapoor appeared in two short films: "Passion to Love" (2002), which was also directed by him, and "India 1964" (2004). He later began working as an assistant with director Sanjay Leela Bhansali, where he was involved in the making of the film "Black" (2005).
