Rani Mukerji and Shah Rukh Khan acted together in several films including Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (all three were directed by Karan Johar), Chalte Chalte, Paheli and Veer-Zaara among others.
Mrs Chatterjee vs Norway, inspired by true events, presents the story of an immigrant Indian mother, Devika Chatterjee (played by Rani Mukerji), who lives in Norway with her husband and two children. Her life takes a drastic turn when her children are taken into the Norwegian foster care system simply because of cultural differences. He decides to fight all the way for his children.
Directed by Ashima Chibber and produced by Zee Studios and Emmay Entertainment. Mrs Chatterjee vs Norway hits theaters Friday.
Reviewing the film for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee wrote of Rani’s performance: “Rani Mukerji, on the other hand, lets it rip and the film stumbles over its excesses. Mrs Chatterjee vs Norway is an overheated affair that sucks the air out of an inherently moving story that deserved infinitely better.”
