It is a remake of the Marathi film Sairat, which despite negative reviews, was a commercial success earning ₹1.1 billion worldwide.

In 2020, Kapoor appeared in Zoya Akhtar’s segment of the Netflix horror anthology Ghost Stories, receiving praise for her “solid, real act” despite overall criticism of the segments. Following this, she portrayed aviator Gunjan Saxena in the biopic Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl, released on Netflix due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Kapoor’s portrayal garnered mixed reviews, with some critics describing it as “passably steady” while others praised her “pitch-perfect” performance, earning her a nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Actress.

In 2021, Kapoor took on a dual role opposite Rajkummar Rao in the comedy horror film Roohi, which faced delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic but received negative reviews from critics and underperformed at the box office. The following year, she starred in Good Luck Jerry, a remake of the Tamil film Kolamaavu Kokila, released on Disney+ Hotstar. Kapoor’s portrayal in her next film, Mili, a remake of the Malayalam film Helen, earned praise for its “sweetness and sincerity,” but the movie struggled at the box office. Despite the commercial challenges, Kapoor received another Best Actress nomination at the Filmfare Awards.

Kapoor’s latest venture was in Nitesh Tiwari’s Bawaal (2023), a romantic drama alongside Varun Dhawan, released on Amazon Prime Video. However, the film faced criticism for trivializing the Holocaust, and Kapoor’s performance received mixed reviews, with some critics questioning her charisma. Despite this, she is set to star in upcoming projects, including the sports film Mr and Mrs Mahi with Rajkummar Rao and the political thriller Ulajh where she plays a young Indian Foreign Service officer. Additionally, Kapoor will feature in the Telugu action film Devara opposite N. T. Rama Rao Jr., directed by Koratala Siva.
