Director Ram Gopal Varma has joined hands with filmmaker Madhu Mantena for a web-series D-Company.

Varma said only a web-series can do justice to the kind of material he has collected over two decades.

The director announced the collaboration on Twitter. "Me and Madhu Mantena team up for a web series D Company, a chronicle of the Mumbai underworld. Starting from rise of Dawood Ibrahim in early 1980's and initiation of D Company - story will be till end of the tremendous gang wars that started post 93 [1993] blasts," he wrote.

The Sarkar (2005) director said, "I have been collecting data since nearly 20 years actually from even before I made Satya (1998) and Company (2002). Only a web-series like D Company can do justice to the kind of material I have with me."

Varma in 2002 came up with Company, a film loosely based on the Indian mafia organisation D-Company, said to be run by the elusive Dawood Ibrahim.

It was the second film in the gangster trilogy, and a sequel to the blockbuster Satya.

Company starred Mohanlal, Ajay Devgn, Vivek Oberoi, Manisha Koirala, and Antara Mali in pivotal roles.
