They delivered blockbusters after blockbusters and made us fall in love with their movies. However, it’s been a while since they have made a movie and we miss them. In this article, we do a roundup of 5 such directors, who haven’t released a movie in a while and we can’t wait to see them donning the director’s hat again!
S.J Surya made a dream directorial debut with Vaali in 1999 and he backed it up yet another block buster, Kushi, the following year. However, the director in S.J Surya took a back-seat when he got bitten by the acting bug. He directed a few more movies post Kushi, with him playing the protagonist, and to say the least, none made a mark.
S.J Surya, the actor, has redeemed himself with a stellar performance in Iraivi, but we look forward to seeing the director make a come back!
