Rajkumar Kohli (born 14 September 1930 in Lahore, British India) is an Indian film director. He was famous for directing several popular Bollywood films in the 1970s and 1980s with ensemble cast such as Nagin (1976), Jaani Dushman (1979) and Raaj Tilak (1984). His films frequently featured actors like Sunil Dutt, Dharmendra, Jeetendra, Shatrughan Sinha and actresses Reena Roy and Anita Raj.

In the early 1990s, he introduced his son Armaan Kohli in the multi-starrer action film Virodhi (1992) which was a average at box office. He directed his son again in Aulad Ke Dushman (1993) and Qahar (1997) which also failed to help his son's career. After a hiatus he returned in 2002 and relaunched his son in another multi-starrer film in the style of his classic 1970s films Nagin and Jaani Dushman titled Jaani Dushman: Ek Anokhi Kahani. However, upon release it was a box office disaster and was heavily criticised. As well as copying his own 1970s films, the film copied scenes from The Matrix, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Mission: Impossible 2 and The Mummy. He has not directed any film since then.
