In the following year, she debuted along with Abhishek Bachchan as J. P. Dutta’s Refugee. The film was set in 1971, the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971.

Kapoor was presented as Naaz as a Bangladeshi girl who Bachchan’s character is in love with. Dutta picked her because of the mixture of youth and innocence that he saw in her. Kapoor thought their friendship would be an experience of learning which helped her both personally and professionally.
