Rani Mukerji last appeared in the film Mrs. Chatterjee vs Norway. She portrayed the role of an immigrant woman who battled the Norwegian judicial system for custody of her kids. For her role in the movie, Rani sought a lot of praise from the critics. She received recognition for her ability to portray the feelings of a mother who was about to lose her children. Rani has just disclosed a tragic occurrence before the start of the movie’s filming. She revealed that while she and her husband, Aditya Chopra, were expecting their second child in 2020, she suffered a miscarriage five months into the pregnancy.
Rani Mukerji recently attended the Melbourne Indian Film Festival. The actress reportedly disclosed going through a heartbreaking incident in 2020 during the pandemic, according to a report in The Business Today. She admitted that while she was expecting her second child, she had miscarried five months into the pregnancy. Rani stated, “Maybe this is the first time I am making this revelation because, in today’s world, every aspect of your life is discussed publicly and becomes an agenda for discussing your film to get more eyeballs. Obviously, I didn’t speak about this when I was promoting the film because it would have come across as me trying to speak about a personal experience that would propel the film… so, it was around the year when Covid-19 struck. It was 2020. I got pregnant with my second baby at the end of 2020, and I, unfortunately, lost my baby five months into my pregnancy.”
The actress also discussed how Mrs Chatterjee vs Norway producer Nikhil Advani called her ten days after the miscarriage to discuss the movie. She stated, “After losing my baby, Nikhil would have called me probably ten days later. He told me about the story, and I kind of immediately… not that I had to have the loss of a child to feel the emotion, but sometimes there is a film in the right time about what you are going through personally to be able for you to connect with it instantly. When I heard the story, I was in disbelief. I never thought in a country like Norway an Indian family would have had to go through.”
