Khan was born into a film family in Mumbai, to yesteryear actors Randhyir Kapoor and Babita. She's the younger sister of actress Karisma Kapoor, granddaughter of the late actor and filmmaker Raj Kapoor, niece of actor Rishi Kapoor and cousin-sister of actors Ranbir Kapoor and Armaan Jain. The gorgeous Khan attended Jamnabai Narsee School in Mumbai, followed by Welham Girls' School in Dehradun. She discontinued her degree course from Mithibai College in order to study Law from Government Law College, Mumbai and after an year, the lazy student started her training at an acting institute to pursue a career in acting. The pretty lass is now happily married to the Chote Pataudi Nawaab, Saif Ali Khan.
