Ramanand Sagar Foundation (RSF) is a non-profit company registered in Mumbai, India. In a deep desire to take forward the ideals and vision of the film-maker, writer visionary and humanist – Late Dr. Ramanand Sagar, RSF was set up by the heirs of “Papaji” (commonly used name of Ramanand Sagar used by friends and family). Spear-headed by his fourth son, Mr. Prem Sagar and his family, RSF wishes to take the vision and mission of “Papaji” of a new, vibrant, confident India, that is able to learn from its past leaving out what is not relevant in it, that can teach the world something making it a better place.
At a time when sons of successful and esteemed film makers were dreaming of or planning careers in the glamorous field of acting, Ramanand Sagar’s handsome son Prem Sagar joined the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) in Pune soon after completing his education at St. Xavier’s College, Mumbai and emerged from the FTII with a gold medal for the best academic student of the year and a silver medal for the best photographed student film.
Unlike most other aspirants from the Institute, Prem Sagar did not have to wait for employment as his family’s production house, Sagar Arts, one of the most respected and successful production houses in the Hindi film industry, was ready to absorb him immediately.
His eminent father, Dr. Ramanand Sagar, entrusted him with the cinematography of Lalkar a romantic film set against a war backdrop which was then going on the floors under the Sagar Arts banner.
