Rani Mukerji, an actor currently marketing her upcoming social drama “Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway,” claims that she never met the actual Sagarika, whose tale is being told in the movie, and that she modelled her character on her mother.
During a recent promotional event, Rani and the movie’s producer, Nikkhil Advani, spoke with renowned director Karan Johar about their upcoming film.
Rani said, “I took my mother and put her into Mrs Chatterjee. I’ve never met Sagarika. I took inspiration from my mother for the role of Mrs Chatterjee. I saw it as someone so connected to her roots, and I don’t know anyone better connected to her roots than my mom.”
“The movie is very personal for me. The purpose of this film is bigger than a box office success because it needs to create awareness around the stories which happen day in and out for parents outside the country,” added Rani.
The official trailer for the movie, which is based on a true story, was just released by the film’s creators, and it has since gotten a tremendous amount of attention from fans.
In the first scene of the trailer, Mrs Chatterjee (Rani) is cheerfully going about her daily activities in Norway while being loved by her husband and their two children, Shubh and Shuchi. But, the family soon faces a problem when uninvited authorities from the nation’s child protection agency storm on them and kidnap their kids.
She discovers later that her kids were taken from her and placed in foster care because the government believed their parents couldn’t care for them properly. Rani is seen battling the Norwegian foster care system to regain custody of her children in the latter half of the trailer.
The movie “Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway,” directed by Ashima Chibber and produced by Zee Studios and Emmay Entertainment, will debut in theatres on March 17.
