Kapoor was born and raised in Mumbai into a mixed ethnic family. On her father’s side, Kapoor is of Punjabi descent, and on her mother’s
side, she is of predominantly Marathi ancestry. Like her mother, Kapoor has stated that she is of only Marathi origin as she was brought up
mainly by her maternal relatives. She has said that she went through a tomboyish phase as a child. Kapoor’s family members, including her
father Shakti Kapoor and mother Shivangi Kapoor, her elder brother Siddhanth Kapoor, her two aunts Padmini Kolhapure and Tejaswini
Kolhapure are actors in films. She did her schooling at Jamnabai Narsee School and later shifted at the American School of Bombay at the age
of 15. While there, she played soccer and handball competitively as she believed these games were challenging.
She then enrolled in Boston University to major in psychology,but subsequently left her freshman year, to appear in her debut film after she
was seen on Facebook by producer Ambika Hinduja, who cast her for a role in Teen Patti. In an Interview with the Filmfare magazine, Shakti
Kapoor revealed that Kapoor was barely 16 years old, when she was offered her first film by Salman Khan after he was fascinated by one of her
school play performances but Kapoor considering herself to be studious rejected the proposal as she was also aspiring to become a
psychologist. Kapoor was trained as a singer since her childhood as her maternal grandfather (the cousin of singer Lata Mangeshkar) and
mother are classical singers and later marked her singing debut in the 2014 song “Galliyan”.
