Back in 2019, Ajay Devgn announced that he is working on a biopic titled The Ramsay Brothers. The seven Ramsay brothers are known for making horror films in India. Ajay and producer Priti Sinha acquired the rights to share the story of the Ramsay brothers with the masses. While earlier the makers were to make a film, according to the latest information, they are now planning to produce a web series to trace how the seven Ramsay brothers built their horror empire.
The Ramsay Brothers garnered popularity for making cult horror films in the 70s and 80s. The brothers – Kumar Ramsay, Gangu Ramsay, Tulsi Ramsay, Arjun Ramsay, Shyam Ramsay, Keshu Ramsay and Kiran Ramsay, worked together and divided various departments of filmmaking among them. To tell their story to the masses, Ajay Devgn and Priti Sinha acquired rights to their life story for perpetuity in 2019.
It gives me & @pritisinha333 great joy to announce our next project as producers. A fascinating journey of passion, hardships and immense success of 3 Generations of the Ramsay family.
Now, according to the latest report by Mid Day, Ajay Devgn and his crew members are planning to make a web series on the Ramsay family, instead of a film. The decision was taken because the makers felt a two-hour-plus movie wouldn’t be able to do justice to the story of the Ramsay family.
“The project required extensive research as the Ramsays’ journey begins with patriarch Fatehchand U Ramsay in the pre-independence era, and culminates with their last movie, Talaashi in 1996. Having seen the volume of research, the makers felt that a two-hour-plus movie wouldn’t be able to do justice to the story. Plus, Ajay and Priti were bolstered by the success of their last web production, The Great Indian Murder. So, the team has decided to develop it as a web series,” said a source.
Talking further about the project, the source said, “The series will reveal how the Ramsinghanis used the pseudonym Ramsay after they shifted to Mumbai. Fatehchand (the Ramsay brothers’ father) got into showbiz with Shaheed-e-Azam Bhagat Singh (1954) and Ek Nanhi Munni Ladki Thi (1970), before he chanced upon the idea of making a horror film with Do Gaz Zameen Ke Neeche. Soon, his seven sons joined him in the business. The brothers worked in a coordinated manner, dividing the various responsibilities of filmmaking among themselves, thus ensuring that the movies were made on a shoe-string budget.”
The Ramsay Brothers are known for films like Veerana, Purana Mandir, Purani Haveli and have created the renowned television show Zee Horror Show.
