Bollywood actress Rani Mukerji, who turned 43 today, has announced a new film on her special day as a treat for fans. Titled Mrs. Chatterjee Vs Norway, the film is based on the true story of an Indian couple, who children were taken away by Norwegian welfare services in 2011. The film will be produced by Emmay Entertainment and Zee Studios and directed by Ashima Chibber.
Talking about the film, Rani Mukerji told Deadline, “There could have been no better way to celebrate my birthday today than announce this really important film. In my 25th year in cinema, I have possibly signed one of the most special and significant films of my career. I started my career with Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat, which was a woman-centric film, and coincidentally in my 25th year, I’m announcing a film that is also centered around a woman’s resolve to fight against all odds and take on a country. Mrs. Chatterjee vs Norway is a story of true human resilience and it is a film that is dedicated to all the mothers out there. It is truly one of the most amazing scripts that I have read in a long, long time and I immediately decided to do this special film.”
She added, “It is a pleasure to creatively collaborate with Nikkhil Advani, whom I have known since Kuch Kuch Hota Hai! It’s amazing to see him and his company Emmay Entertainment grow. I am happy that Zee Studios has collaborated with them on this powerful script. To partner with Ashima Chibber is something I am looking forward to, whose vision for the film and intent with this project has truly bowled me over. This is a powerful story of a woman that needs to be told. I’m hoping that we will work hard as a team and make magic together for Mrs. Chatterjee vs Norway.”
