We have often seen directors call certain actors their muse, and actors terming themselves as a director’s actor. And it is this synergy between them that often translates well on the big screen. While these actors are a constant in films helmed by these directors, there have been a lot of hit actor-director pairs who have time and again spelt magic on the big screen. On director Abhishek Kapoor’s birthday, we bring to you some of such amazing creative minds whose collaborations won over the audiences.

While birthday boy Abhishek Kapoor is surely a celebrated director, he found his kind of actor in the late Sushant Singh Rajput. While Abhishek directed Sushant in his debut film Kai Po Che, not only did they went on to become good friends, but also a hit pairing for the big screen. And after Sushant’s debut, Abhishek directed the actor once again in Kedarnath, proving that they make a great team.
