+2 votes
MB series,3 idiots, PK
Also remember fate of FKS & Saala khadoos,both were marketed on the name of Hirani.
Rohit Shetty
Zameen, Golmaal series, Singham series,ATB,CE, Dilwale
Khamoshi, HDDCS, Devdas, Black, Saawariya,RL,BM, Padmaavat
Aditya Chopra
Ddlj,Mohabbatein, RNBDJ, Befikre

Not quality wise as the unanimous answer will be Hirani.
As we all know all of the above Directors have more or less some Brand value.
Brand wise who is more bigger?
Who can pull more audience on his name?
Raj Kumar Hirani (11 votes, 58%)
Rohit Shetty (3 votes, 16%)
Karan Johor (2 votes, 11%)
Sanjay leela bhansali (3 votes, 16%)
Aditya Chopra (0 votes)

Raju Hirani is miles ahead.

SLB & Rohit will dwindle based on their last film's performance. So will KJo & Aditya.

Overall, as a brand KJo & Aditya will still stand their ground despite recent films performances.

As a brand, Kjo & Adi are household names, they produce movies, have 2 of the biggest production house, gets the biggest budgets, 2 biggest launchpad for young stars and are considered as powerful personalities within film industry.

Solely as a director, Raju is ahead, but as a brand, KJO & Adi comes first, then comes others..!!

In the era of today.. Brand value of director is always based on the movie he makes and trust he has developed in the audience.. One day u can make a DDLJ and same person can also give a Befikre to u..
As of now Raju Hirani has gained immense trust.. Whenever he makes his directorial. People rush to cinemas.. Similarly Rohit shetty has his base in masses.. After Salman Khan Rohit shetty does have power to bring masses to cinema.. Sanjay takes risky movies it can be Padmavaat or a Guzarish...
As per ranking Hirani, Rohit, Sanjay, karan and aditya

Sooraj Barjatya , the director of crossover Hit Hum Aapke Hain Koun , second most profitable movie in history Maine Pyar Kiya, Blockbusters Hum Saath Saath Hain and Vivaah, highest opening record and TRP Record holder Prem Ratan Dhan Payo and only domestic flop MPKDH was a Hit overseas.
He doesn't need dancing or flying cars or blashphemy against long dead humans.
He is the perfect director for national integration.
You will see orthodox hindus and orthodox muslims enjoying together in his movies.That's the best quality he offers

answered Apr 16 by shah Executive Producer (65,396 points)

Nodoubt about that.
Sooraj will be among the biggest ever Director Bolly had ever seen.
Here iam talking about the current generation of Director.
Sooraj was undoubtedly the biggest in 90's & one of the biggest in Indian cinema history.

I would go with SLB. Before padmavat he would have been second but now hes the undisputed king because of his unique style.

I used to adore hirani but seeing as most of his work is inspired/copied.. I was heartbroken.

Keeping quality and BO aside, brand to me means how many people know that person, and in that case KJo is way ahead of these other guys.

People who are more aware of movies etc might know Hirani and Aditya Chopra.

Other than that SLB and Rohit Shetty are very well known to general public.

But when you take the name Karan Johar in front of any general Bollywood viewer, or even someone who doesn't watch Bollywood movies anymore, they will know who you are talking about, what movies he's made, and what type of movies he's famous for.

Raju Hirani by some distance. The second spot goes to RS and SLB

answered Apr 16 by Intense Director (127,713 points)

I also Get Downvotes Regularly!

but sometimes intense gets downvotes even for neutral non controversial answers too

Charlie I never say anything controversial. I would love to know who gives me these downvotes......but I can't.

I Also Many Times Got Downvotes For No Reason!

Hirani Wasnt Director Of SK and FKS So No Point Considering That In That Way Many Flops Of Aditya And Karan Would Emerge So Ignoring That

Difference Between Raju And Rohit Is To Some Extent Similar To Aamir And Salman One Has Bigger Hits But Less Volume and Other Has Comparitavely Smaller Hits But More Volume.
Also One Is More Popular Among Masses and One More Popular Among Classes So Very Tough To Choose one.

After That Its Sanjay Leela Bansali
Then Karan Johar
After That Comes Aditya Chopra

However The Biggest Director Of All Time Are Raj Kapoor And Manmohan Desai As Per BOI
