Kapoor made his debut in November 2007 with
Sanjay Leela Bhansali's " Saawariya" opposite newcomer Sonam Kapoor. The film failed to do well at the box office, [cite web|title=Box Office 2007|url=http://www.boxofficeindia.com/showProd.php?itemCat=214&catName=MjAwNw=|publisher=BoxOfficeIndia.com|accessdate=2008-01-09] though he received many positive reviews for his portrayal of the lovesick singer, Ranbir Raj. Critic, Taran Adarshcommented, "Ranbir Kapoor is supremely talented, no two opinions on that. Yes, he looks handsome, but what you carry home is the sincerity in his performance. If that's the [high] level of performance in his debut film, this lad will only make the Kapoor clan proud in years to come. It's a 10 on 10 for this debutante."

Kapoor was recently seen in
Siddharth Anand's " Bachna Ae Haseeno", which released on August 15, 2008. The film did reasonably well, therefore acquiring a semi-hit status at the box office. As of September 2008, he is filming for Rajkumar Santoshi's " Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani" opposite Katrina Kaif.
