Rajkumar Hirani
A graduate of the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII), Raju segued into commercials before making it huge in movies as the director of three of India's most beloved films. 'Munna Bhai MBBS' is considered a classic, 'Lage Raho Munnabahi' is credited with re-popularizing Gandhism in India while '3 Idiots' became the highest grossing Hindi film in history. A hugely significant popular filmmaker, he has earned a reputation for comedies that explore strongly humanist themes with realistic characters that don't sell the audience short.
