Movie making is not an easy task. Most directors who gave successful movies in their career would have struggled at one point when their movies failed to perform well upon release.

However, in Kollywood, there are three directors who gave zero flop or average movies since the day they began directing. All their movies became superhit blockbusters:

# Atlee

Atlee made his movie debut via 'Raja Rani' which had Arya, Nayanthara, Jai and Nazriya in the lead. Following its success, the director gave three superhit movies - Theri, Mersal, and Bhigil - with Thalapathy Vijay in the lead
