Sharing her reaction to the trailer, Sagarika said, "It’s hard to put into words how it feels seeing my story being told. Watching the trailer, I felt like I was reliving my battle. I believe it is important for people to know this story and to see how immigrant mothers/parents are treated even today, as is evident from the tragic story in Germany. I’ve been in touch with Ariha Shah’s mother Dhara, whose little girl has been taken away. I implore you all to stand by her, just as I do. My support is unconditional, from one mother to another.”

“I want to thank Rani Mukerji for channeling the grief and struggles that I went through to win back my children. She is a mother herself and I thank her for bringing a mother’s painful journey on screen with so much dignity that I broke down while seeing her in the trailer,” she added.

Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway is directed by Ashima Chibber. It is based on the true story of Sagarika and her husband who were separated from their two kids in 2011. Besides Rani Mukerji, it also has Anirban Bhattacharya, Jim Sarbh and Neena Gupta in pivotal roles.
