Anirban Bhattacharya, Mimi Chakraborty starrer Dracula Sir hits big screens
Kolkata/IBNS: Filmmaker Debaloy Bhattacharya’s Bengali film Dracula Sir, which stars actors Anirban Bhattacharya and Mimi Chakraborty in the lead roles, released on Wednesday as cinema halls, which were closed due to Covid-19, have reopened after seven months.
Dracula Sir, produced by SVF, revolves around a teacher with a protruding pair of canine teeth eventually becoming a vampire.
It also features actors Bidipta Chakraborty, Rudranil Ghosh, Samiul Alam, Kanchan Mullick and Supriyo Dutta in distinct roles.
Excited about playing a new experimental character, Bhattacharya said, "I am happy that the film is finally releasing in theatres and people will get to experience the essence of the story on the big screen. It has been a worthwhile experience working with Debaloy Bhattacharya. He has been extremely co-operative and friendly throughout.
"I hope I have done justice to the vision of the director. There isn’t anything extra that I need to talk about Mimi, Rudranil, Kanchan or Bidipta as all of them are extremely powerful actors. There has been a lot of hard work involved with this film. I hope the audience gives a lot of love to Dracula Sir.”
Chakraborty, who is also a parliamentarian, made a comeback into film after plunging into politics in 2019.
She said, "It’s always a pleasure working with SVF and I’m happy that I’m working with them on such a unique project. My character Manjari is very different from all the characters I’ve played over the years. This is also my first film with Debaloy and second film with Anirban so I’m looking forward to the release of this film!"
Mahendra Soni, Co-Founder & Director of SVF said, "The re-opening of theatres can’t get better with the release of Dracula Sir. The trailer has been so well received that I can feel the audience’s excitement to watch the film on the big screen. This is the first time the Bengali audience will get to experience, cherish and talk about their own vampire in the form of a simple Bangali man, through this unique film.
"Anirban surpasses himself as an actor and Mimi will be in a never-seen before avatar. Knowing the best team involved in the film, the audience should expect the unexpected!"
