In the film, a primary school teacher Raktim (Anirban Bhattacharya) with a protruding pair of canine teeth earns himself a nickname Dracula Sir. As destiny pushes him towards becoming the vampire he has always been referred to, he has a story to tell from 1971 that makes his journey a tale of finding love and seeking revenge. Mimi will be seen as Manjari, a character with melancholia, who drives the narrative like a silent anchor. Dracula Sir, directed by Debaloy Bhattacharya will be the first Bengali film dealing with the popular Westernised concept of vampires and dracula. The teaser of Dracula Sir will release on Saturday.
