Rani Mukerji says she was inspired by her mother for her next film, Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway. The film, directed by Mere Dad Ki Maruti’s Ashima Chibber, tells the story of a journey of a mother’s battle against an entire country. The film is based on a true story of NRI couple Sagarika Bhattacharya and Anurup Bhattacharya who shook children and human rights internationally.

Rani said that although she did not meet Sagarika while making the film, her portrayal of the character is based on her mother Krishna Mukherjee. “As an actor, I wanted to be my interpretation of the character. I didn’t want too much baggage and people finding similarities between my role and the real person.

“Ashima had recorded many Sagarika tapes, and I saw them for some references, but the rest of the character is actually based on my mother. She’s the most Bengali person I know…Whether for feeding us with her hands, putting a tikka on us… I drew strength and inspiration from my mother,” Rani said at a promotional event for the film on Friday.

Actor and producer Nikkhil Advani was in conversation with filmmaker Karan Johar. Rani said Nikkhil approached him with a one-line script and didn’t give him a chance to say “no”. “I told Nikkhil he couldn’t handle my temper tantrums. But Nikkhil agreed to all my terms and gave me no chance to say ‘no’ to the movie,” she added.

Praising his director Ashima, the 44-year-old actor said the filmmaker was passionate about the subject and researched it well. “When I spoke to Ashima, I realized that she was very passionate about the story because she spoke to Sagarika and was very involved in the subject. That love translates into the film. “

Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway is produced by Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani and Nikkhil Advani of Emmay Entertainment and Zee Studios.

Nikkhil said it was important for him to shine a light on the stories of Indians based overseas. The filmmaker produced Airlift in 2016, based on the evacuation of Indians based in Kuwait during the invasion of Kuwait by Saddam Hussein’s Iraq. “There are so many stories like this that are hard to believe. Even when I made Airlift, I found it very hard to believe that 170,000 Indians were stuck there. is such an amazing story. A lot of these untold stories are happening with Indians overseas, and they need to be brought to light,” the producer said.

Rani recalled how her husband, Yash Raj Films director Aditya Chopra, was “shocked and moved” after seeing the film. “Adi was shocked after seeing the movie. He was deeply moved and I don’t think I’ve seen him so moved in any movie. The last time he was so moved was when Uncle Yash is deceased.

“He’s a parent now, so it hit him. He was really nice and hugged me like I was his kid. He said, ‘Bravo’, and I said, ‘Thank you “. It was a moment because Adi was praising me behind my back. I think he couldn’t help it and he was moved by the movie,” she said. Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway is set to hit theaters on March 17.
