Speaking about the film, Rani had said, “I told Nikkhil (Advani) that he won’t be able to deal with my tantrums. But Nikkhil agreed to all my conditions and didn’t give me any chance to say ‘no’ to the film.” Talking about the film’s director Ashima Chibber, Rani had said, “When I spoke to Ashima, I realised that she was very passionate about the story because she had spoken to Sagarika and she was very involved with 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.
The film is based on a true story of NRI couple Sagarika Bhattacharya and Anurup Bhattacharya.
On her role, Rani had told Karan Johar and Nikkhil Advani at an event of the film, recently, “As an actor, I wanted to bring my interpretation to the character. I didn’t want too much baggage and have people find similarities between my role and the real person. Ashima had many tapes recorded of Sagarika, and I saw those for some references, but the rest of the character is actually based on my mum. She’s the most Bengali person I know… Be it feeding us with her hands, putting a teeka on us… I drew strength and inspiration from my mother.”
