Filmmaker Shyam Ramsay, of Ramsay Brothers fame, breathed his last today morning. He was one of the seven Ramsay brothers who were known for making cult classic horror films in the 70s and 80s. Shyam was 67.

As per a report in PTI, Shyam died because of pneumonia. He was admitted to a suburban hospital. The filmmaker’s relative told the news agency, “He was hospitalised today morning as he was not feeling well so family members got him hospitalised. He passed away in hospital due to pneumonia.”
