Keshu Ramsay: Creator of brand Khiladi shifts to create new Khiladis in the world of gods


The man who gave Akshay Kumar the brand name ‘Khiladi’ by featuring him in series of films with Khiladi as a tag name, Keshu Ramsay, who belonged to the famous clan of the Ramsay brothers (one of the seven) left for the heavenly abode after suffering a massive heart attack. Keshu Ramsay as a matter of fact was catalysis in taking Akshay Kumar’s career to a new orbit, once he cast him opposite Juhi Chawla in MR and MRS. KHIALADI. From then on, Akshay Kumar never looked back.

Relationships however have a time line. So the bonding between Akshay Kumar and Keshu Ramsay also became tapered off, after their last effort together FAMILY-TIES OF BLOOD crashed at the box office.

As a matter of fact for both Keshu Ramsay as also Akshay Kumar the KHILADI series catapulted them to a higher orbit. Before the advent of KHILADI series, while Akshay Kumar was languishing with small time movies, Keshu Ramsay was also stuck in the family business of horror films, and when both of them pooled their energies together and came up with the idea of KHILADI it indeed set the screen on fire. KHILADI developed into an iconic brand for Hindi cinema and it also provided an opportunity to an established actor like Rekha to experiment with her role as she did in KHILADIYON KA KHILADI where she played the role of a war lord, who did have gumption to even seduce and serenade Akshay on the screen. This phenomenon happened on the silver screen for the first time where a famous female actor from a different generation agreed to seduce an actor from a new generation, discounting such efforts being undertaken by Aruna Irani and Padma Khanna along with Bindu in score of films as they were playing the role of vamp. Other KHILADI series in the oeuvre included SABSE BADA KHILADI, INTERNATIONAL KHILADI, KHILADI 420 etc.

It was not that Keshu Ramsay was content with KHILADI series with Akshay Kumar; he in fact gave him a new identity by making KHAKEE, which is considered a milestone in Akhsay Kumar’s career, for that matter, with all those were there in KHAKEE.

After his passing away, there are rumours in the market that Akshay Kumar did not help Keshu Ramsay during his lean patch that he was going through, may be as a tribute to his memory Akshay should again bring about another KHILADI series to pay tribute to his benefactor. Besides, Ramsay brothers need to file a patent in the name of KHILADI so that the brand remains with the family and it can be used by the next generation to come. After all, it was Keshu Ramsay’s contribution to the film industry.
