What? He is on 3rd rank. He deserves 1st rank. Not only in india in the whole world he is the best directer. His every movie is a masterpiece. His works like anand, aalap, anari,etc are heart touching. His comedy works like golmal, chupke chupke, etc are laughing cylinder.

4 Upendra Rao

Best and versatile director and has a good thoughts.

What ever upendra does is excellent he is an exceptional director

Best in India. But not popular as Hindi directors.. If u watch his film you says he is real director..
