Born in South Mumbai, Kapoor is the second son of film director and star Raj Kapoor. He did his schooling with his brothers at Campion School,Mumbai. His brothers are well-known actors: Randhir Kapoor and Rajiv Kapoor.

Rishi Kapoor debuted in his father's 1970 film Mera Naam Joker, playing his father's role as a child. Rishi Kapoor had his first lead role opposite Dimple Kapadia in the popular 1973 film Bobby which became an instant hit among youngsters. He has, since then, played the lead role romancing young heroines till the year 2000 with the delayed release of Karobaar: The Business of Love. He moved on to supporting roles with Hum Tum (2004) and Fanaa (2006). He directed a film Aa Ab Laut Chalen in 1999 starring Aishwarya Rai, Akshaye Khanna, Kader Khan, Paresh Rawal and Jaspal Bhatti. Recently he appeared in Namaste London and an English-language film titled Don't Stop Dreaming which was directed by his cousin Aditya Raj Kapoor (son of actor Shammi Kapoor). He acted with the veteran actor Kamal Haasan in Saagar which was officially sent to the Oscars.

Kapoor has acted in Heena, directed by his brother, Randhir Kapoor and his father, the late Raj Kapoor, and in Prem Granth, a movie produced by the three Kapoor brothers (Rishi, Randhir and Rajiv Kapoor, directed by Rajiv Kapoor).

Rishi has acted in the movie Chintu Ji in which he plays himself. The film has references that pertain to Raj Kapoor, his father, his mother, his wife and his earlier films like Chandni, Mera Naam Joker and others.

Rishi Kapoor is married to actress of the seventies, Neetu Singh, although he initially wanted to marry Dimple Kapadia after filming the hit seventies movie Bobby. Kapadia refused, as her acting career had just began, a marriage would cause a halt in her career and both Kapoor and Kapadia were fairly young. Although a couple of months later Kapadia met Bollywood Superstar and Heartthrob of the sixties/seventies, Rajesh Khanna and married him. But, Kapadia and Khanna's marriage was not successful. After Kapoor's heartbreak, he continued to make hit films, many of which were with Neetu Singh. During this process they fell in love. Initially when Kapoor told his parent's that he wanted to marry Singh, they refused as well as Singh's parents. It is famously known that Kapoor went to Singh's house while he was sick and had a fever to go ask for Neetu Singh's hand in marriage. His determination was not gone unnoticed, and eventually both sides agreed. The couple tied the knot in 1981 after a highly publicized engagement. Kapoor was 29 at the time. Today Kapoor and Singh are happily married and have two children; Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor and designer Riddhima Kapoor Sahani. Rishi is the paternal uncle of today's actresses Karisma Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor.
