Kapoor says that he knows a lot about the Capital which the younger generation is not aware of. “I have started my journey from scratch and have seen Delhi when there were no malls and buildings. I have travelled and stayed at those places where there were no bathrooms and homes. There would be streets and nalas where kids used to defecate in open. So, that’s the time I know Delhi from.”
