Shraddha Kapoor made her acting debut in 2010 with the film Teen Patti alongside Amitabh Bachchan, R. Madhavan, and Raima Sen. The film tanked at the box office, and her performance went partially unnoticed. For her role as college rockstar Aparna, she had workshops with Royston Abel, Ashley Lobo and Barry John.Shraddha described her character as "a studious girl and is also a guitarist in her college’s music band" and "a very intriguing person."
In 2011, she signed a three-movie contract with Yash Raj Films. However, the contract has been cancelled due to Shraddha Kapoor signing Mahesh Bhatt's Aashiqui 2. She starred in Y-Films's venture, Luv Ka The End alongside newcomer Taaha Shah. Of her role, Kapoor remarked, "I play the character of Rhea Dialdas who is feminine, quirky but at the same time determined. When she learns that her boyfriend is cheating on her, initially she is heartbroken and shattered. But she gets over the rona-dhona and picks up the baseball bat to get even with him." Despite the film's poor performance at the box office, Kapoor's performance attracted generally positive reviews. Rachana of Glamsham Editorial wrote, "Shraddha Kapoor clearly steals the show and it's her performance which lights up the film. She is the star of the film." Kapoor was also awarded Stardust Searchlight Award For Best Actress for the film.
In 2013, Kapoor starred in Aashiqui 2, a romantic musical drama film opposite Aditya Roy Kapur. Her character in the film, Arohi Shirke, is a small-town bar singer who later becomes a successful playback artiste. The film received a positive to mixed critical reception. However, reviewers were mostly positive about Kapoor's performance. Anupama Chopra calls her the "real triumph" and said that she is "very good as the woman in the throes of a grand passion who believes that love will show the way" The Times Of India's Madhureeta Mukherjee adds, saying that Kapoor lets "her emotions play out brilliantly in high-strung scenes with supreme confidence". Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama stated, ' Shraddha also gets to sink her teeth into this challenging character and the attractive youngster is simply amazing, more so towards the demanding moments in the second hour. Furthermore, the chemistry between Aditya and Shraddha is incredible, which also proves yet again that the right casting can work wonders.' The film went on to became a major box-office success attaining a blockbuster status by grossing more than INR100 crore. She ranked #27 at Times' 50 Most Desirable Women of 2012.
