Filmmaker Tulsi Ramsay passed away on Thursday evening. He was 77.
Best known for helming horror films like Hotel, Purana Mandir, Tahkhana, Veerana and Bandh Darwaza, Tulsi also directed the TV series The Zee Horror Show.
Tulsi Ramsays nephew Amit Ramsay said, “Tulsiji experienced some pain in his chest, and he had a heart attack. So he was taken to Kokilaben Hospital in Mumbai. He then passed away yesterday after he was brought back home. He was 77 years old.”
Tulsis longtime associate Govind Yadav added, “Tulsiji passed away on Thursday evening. His funeral will happen today around 2 pm. He was not keeping well from some time now.”
Tulsi Ramsay and his six brothers, together known as Ramsay Brothers in the Hindi film industry, started a mini cottage industry of small-budget horror films with scripts which wasted no time on non-essentials: the humans were just an excuse for the parade of colourful, crass otherworldly creatures.
