He is among the highest-paid actors in Hindi film, and since 2012, he has appeared on Forbes India’s Celebrity 100 list. Numerous honours, including six Filmfare Awards, have been bestowed on Kapoor.

Kapoor studied method acting and filmmaking at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute.

He then worked with director Sanjay Leela Bhansali on the movie Black (2005) before making his acting debut in the critically and financially unsuccessful 2007 film Saawariya, a sad love story. Wake Up Sid, Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani, a 2009 coming-of-age drama, and Raajneeti, a 2009 romantic comedy, were all critical and commercial successes for Kapoor.

Kapoor won two consecutive Filmfare Awards for Best Actor for his roles as a disturbed singer in Rockstar (2011) and a jovial deaf and dumb man in Barfi! (2012).

His stardom was further enhanced by his starring role in the 2013 romantic comedy Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani alongside Deepika Padukone. Following that, there was a string of commercial flops, with Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (2016) and Sanju (2018) standing out. His performance as Sanjay Dutt in the latter, which went on to become his highest-grossing film, earned him yet another Filmfare Award.

After a break, he appeared in the highest-grossing fantasy movie Brahmastra: Part One – Shiva.

Kapoor is an actor who also supports charitable organisations and causes. He also shares ownership with Mumbai City FC of the Indian Super League.
