Most successful director and actor duos will be mostly from Tollywood in Indian Cinema. A director who gets a blockbuster with an actor would most likely do another film with him. The same happens with the actors too. The actors also would like to give dates again to the director who is successful with them already. This tradition turned out to be exciting and resulted in many successful combos in Tollywood.
