She went on to call Rani's performance ‘mind-blowing’ and heart-wrenching. “Mai itna emotional ho gayi thi. Mujhe laga reality me jo mere sath hua toh jo mai movie dekh rahi thi, usme koi farak nahi hai. Mujhe itna acha laga toh audience ko aur bhi acha lagega (I was so emotional and it felt like there was no difference in my reality and the film. The audience is going to love it)," she added. She also said that the film's team has ‘justified’ her real-life story.

Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway revolves around a story of an immigrant mother who fights a nation for her children's custody. She moves to Norway after marriage and starts her family. However, things take a different turn when her children are taken away from her on the pretext of improper parenting. Rani Mukerji appears as Debika, the mother while actor Anirban Bhattacharya plays her husband.

It is directed by Ashima Chibber. Talking about the film, she said, "The shoot and the local crew consisted of many pregnant and working mothers, single parents and it felt like the entire set had this mother energy that took over. It definitely is not an easy task to accommodate so many mothers along with their children and it is kudos to the production team to have taken up such a challenging task and see through it to the end.”
