Career challenges (2014—present)

Kapur next collaborated with Habib Faisal for the comedy-drama Daawat-e-Ishq (2014). Cast alongside Parineeti Chopra and Anupam Kher, he played Tariq Haider, a renowned restaurant manager who falls in love with Chopra's character. The film, which had a mixed critical reception, with critics criticizing the chemistry between him and Chopra, proved to be a major critical and box-office failure earning ₹200 million (US$2.9 million) domestically. After a year-long absence from full time acting, Kapur appeared in Abhishek Kapoor's romantic drama Fitoor (2016), an adaptation of Charles Dickens' novel Great Expectations, in which he played a role based on Philip Pirrip, named Noor Nizami, an aspiring gentleman, alongside Katrina Kaif and Tabu. The following year, Kapur co-starred with Shraddha Kapoor in Shaad Ali's romantic comedy Ok Jaanu. Both films were critical and commercial failures and met with mixed reviews from critics. After an another long year-absence from acting, Kapur featured in Abhishek Varman's 2019 period drama Kalank, in which he starred alongside an ensemble cast including Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha, Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt, playing the character of Dev Chaudhry, a man running a liberal newspaper whose wife dies due to a disease and is then married to her best friend. Set during the year 1945 prior to the Partition of India, Kalank was made on a production budget of ₹1.5 billion (US$22 million), which made it one of the most expensive Hindi films, and received negative attentions from critics, but had a good opening collecting ₹219 million (US$3.2 million) on the first day; however, after 9 consecutive days of good collecting, the film earned little at the box office, clashing with Avengers: Endgame, and thus failed to perform commercially. Kapur will next reunite with Suri for the romantic thriller Malang, which also features Disha Patani, Kunal Khemu and Anil Kapoor, and star in Anurag Basu's as-yet untitled action romance alongside Abhishek Bachchan, Rajkummar Rao, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Sanya Malhotra, and Pankaj Tripathi. He is also filming Mahesh Bhatt's romantic thriller Sadak 2, a sequel to the 1991 thriller Sadak, co-starring Dutt, Alia Bhatt, and Pooja Bhatt.
