Some amazing directors like Priyadarshan or Aditya Chopra aren't among these people, but this is an impressive list and all have made very good movies.

answered Apr 16 by mr.hola Assistant Director (45,959 points)

Updated The List With 4 More Names Including Priyadarshan but didnt include Aditya Chopra Has he Has Just 3 Hit Films.
Only Raju and Karan are here with just 4 hits and I included them bcz of their brand value hoping that they will soon have their 5th hit.
Also Raju has record for most atbb as well as 100% Hit Ratio Whereas Karan has 100% Success Ratio so that helps!
