These combos have made pots and pots of money together. And then some more!

We saw some of Bollywood's most successful actor-director jodis in the first part of our two-part special.

Here's taking a look at the concluding part.

Ranbir Kapoor-Anurag Basu

When Ranbir signed up for Anurag Basu's Barfi! -- where he played a deaf and mute protagonist -- many wondered if it was the right career move.

Now, Ranbir is all set to play a detective in Basu's Jagga Jasoos.

Films together: Barfi! (Rs 112 crores)

Since their earlier films released before 2000, box office collections don't quite indicate the kind of footfalls that Salman Khan and Sooraj Barjatya have enjoyed.

In fact, if one accounts for the numbers for these films -- after adjusting for inflation -- the combined collections would probably cross the Rs 750 crore mark.

After many years, they will get together once again for Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.

Movies together: Maine Pyar Kiya (Rs 15 crore), Hum Aapke Hain Koun...! (Rs 60 crore), Hum Saath Saath Hain (Rs 25 crore). Total: Rs 100 crores.

Upcoming release: Prem Ratan Dhan Payo
