Which indian legislations are applicable to Directors?

Hello Friends,

One of our client is from Germany, wants to set up a company in India. The nationality of both directors will be Germany. My question is that which Indian legislations, rules, regulations will be applicable to them apart from Companies Act, 1956.

Awaiting your views.
