He grew up in Mumbai, India, where his family moved soon after his birth.After spending his elementary school years in kitchener, where he attended Scottish High School, Mumbai, a respected private school, Ram spent his formative years at Sherwood College, a well known boarding school in Nainital, where he excelled in sports and was part of swimming, volley ball and tennis teams. It was at Sherwood College that Kapoor not only metamorphosed into the prankster that he is today, but was introduced to acting quite by accident, when as a challenge and an order from his head captain, Tarun Deo he auditioned for the annual school theatrical production of Charley’s Aunt and performed the lead role. It was under the direction and tutelage of Amir Raza Hussein that Kapoor found his career path when he realized he loved acting. Kapoor attended Kodaikanal International School for two years after class ten.Following his graduation from school and being armed with the knowledge that he loved acting, Kapoor decided to join the entertainment industry and left for Los Angeles, USA with the intention of joining UCLA to study film making. But it was his love for acting that compelled him to join the Stanislavski Method Acting Academy in Los Angeles, USA, from where Kapoor was one of the approximate twelve students out of the class of twenty eight who successfully graduated. Kapoor’s mother was his biggest support, but his father doubted his commitment; he wanted Kapoor to follow in his footsteps and join the corporate world. To prove to his father he was committed to acting, Kapoor attended the Stanislovsky School of Method Acting for six months before he informed his parents that he was attending acting school and not UCLA. To support himself Kapoor did odd jobs which included selling cars, credit cards, cable subscriptions and working at Starbucks. After graduating from the acting academy, Kapoor returned home to India.

The show produced by Nimbus Television (Executive Producer - Sushil Datta) dealt with the emotional turmoil and struggle of women and Ram played Gaurav, the love interest of the sister of one of the protagonists. Though the show did not gain popular recognition, Kapoor’s work was appreciated and he was inundated with offers. Craving creative satisfaction, Kapoor took up three more shows Heena (1998), Sangharsh (1999) and Kavita (2000).If Nyay bestowed critical acclaim, Kavita (2000) a love story between a rich tycoon's son and a hard working, righteous middle class girl gave Kapoor the opportunity to play the romantic lead, Rishi Grover opposite Smriti Irani. In 1999 Kapoor starred in two new daily dramas, Heena and Sangarsh. Heena was a female-oriented show about the trials and tribulations of a woman who fights back to achieve happiness.

The year 2000 was not only a busy year for Kapoor but also very successful. It was also the year Kapoor to act in Ghar Ek Mandir.

By this time Kapoor was working in four shows at once. Exhaustion and fatigue coupled with unhappiness over the direction of his character made Kapoor opt out of two shows, Kavita and Sangharsh.By then Heena had aired its last episode, leaving Kapoor to concentrate on Ghar Ek Mandir. It was in this year that Kapoor worked with Amir Raza Hussein once again when he became part of the largest theatrical show in India, compromising of 140 actors.

Ram was also seen in Awaaz Dil Se Dil Tak. The serial deals with the intricacies of human interaction when eighteen passengers get marooned on an island and are later rescued. Kapoor played a cop and received great reviews; this is what one critic said, "Ram Kapoor who plays the cop has been the best of the lot, for a controlled performance of a father dealing with his child’s kidnappers."
