Sandalwood has been going in the right direction in the past few years. Many new filmmakers have emerged while the stars have made their foundation stronger. On that note, here are the few hero-director combination movies which if made can set the screens on fire.

1. Yash – Suri


KGF and Tagaru were part of the two biggest hits in Sandalwood last year. Both these talented gentlemen have not worked together in the past and maybe the time has come for a dark underworld film to be made with the Rocking Star as the protagonist.

2. Sudeep – Prashant Neel


Prashant Neel has proved himself that he is a master in carving out larger than life characters. Sudeep is one hero who could fulfil Neel’s vision with his acting and physique. Hence, this combination could well work out in the future.

3. Darshan – Yograj Bhat

Darshan has had very few dialogue-based films in his career. The audience would like to see D-Boss in a completely fun avatar and Yograj could be the perfect filmmaker to do that.


4. Puneeth Raj Kumar – Simple Suni

Simple Suni has established himself as a minimum guarantee director who can dish out entertaining films. Puneeth could be the actor who can take Suni to the next level in his career.

5. Shivaraj Kumar – Santosh Anandram

Everyone’s expecting a complete family entertainer from veteran Shivanna and Santosh Anandram should be the director to satisfy this urge of the fans.

6. Upendra – Shashank

Shashank is someone who produces neat entertainers and Uppi, who has done less family based or love stories in his career should team up with Shashank to give us something new.

7. Rakshit Shetty – Pawan Kumar

Both are torch-bearers of new age Kannada cinema and a film on their combination will take our industry a few notches higher.

8. Ganesh – Rishab Shetty

Rishab Shetty has made a name for himself with a few clean comedies and a movie with Sandalwood’s C/O address in that genre, will be keenly anticipated by the fans.
