Kapoor is married to his Ghar Ek Mandir costar and actress Gautami Kapoor (nee Gadgil). They met on the sets of the TV show Ghar Ek Mandir and dated for a while before tying the knot on Valentines Day in 2003. They have two children, daughter Sia and son Aks.

The 44-year-old actor admits that it is hard to make people laugh and the only reason he took up this show was because he wanted to challenge himself as an actor. The show will feature celebrity guests like Salman Khan, Swami Ramdev, Sunny Leone and Anu Malik.  The show will go on air from February 17 on Discovery JEET, the new entertainment channel from Discovery India.
