Gossip columnists have linked Kapoor to a number of her co-stars, but she has strongly denied all these rumors. In 2004, she began dating actor Shahid Kapoor, the son of veteran actor Pankaj Kapoor.While dating, their relationship was widely reported in the media, and was once in the center of a scandal when onlookers with mobile phone cameras filmed them kissing and released it to the news. The couple separated three years later during the filming of their film Jab We Met (2007). Though media projected it as a publicity stunt for the film, it was later confirmed that the couple had indeed broken up. According to her, they remained on good terms, with her saying in an interview, “I have seen Shahid from his first film to Jab We Met and I can say that there is a marked difference. According to me he is a bundle of talent waiting to explode. I have that much of faith in him as an actor.
