The actor can currently be seen making his debut in the action thriller Ishaqzaade.
He told the Hindustan Times: "Just because you are a producer's son doesn't mean you would have an easy ride. These expectations come down to nothing when you don't deliver. Audience doesn't think like that. They are very sensible and intelligent and it doesn't matter to them whose son/daughter you are.
"I am open to everything and want to be seen as an actor who can play all types of characters. I am not restricting myself to any characterisation and don't wish to get typecast. I would be happy to do a sweet romcom or a hardcore masala film."
Kapoor's father Boney is a producer, married to actress Sridevi, and his uncle is Slumdog Millionaire actor Anil Kapoor.
Karan Johar recently praised Ishaqzaade's two leads and described the film itself as "phenomenal".
In May, the makers of the film launched a promotional app for people to share their love stories.
