Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway impacted me deeply, says Alia Bhatttext_fields
Mumbai: Bollywood actress Alia Bjatt said that she spent Saturday night watching Rani Mukerji's film 'Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway". She took to Instagram to talk about the film's impact.
Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway is based on the real-life incident of an Indian immigrant family living in Norway. The childcare system of the European nation deems the mom unfit and takes away her children. The movie follows the two-year-long journey of the mother to reunite with them.
Alia on an Instagram story said that the movie about a struggling mother impacted her deeply. The actress is also a new mother. She also praised Rani Mukerji and Jim Sarbh who played the main characters.
She wrote, "Saturday night was spent in tears with my mom and sister as we watched our favourite - the brilliant Rani Mukherjee. Mrs Chatterjee vs Norway is such an important story to tell. For me, especially as a new mother, it hit so much harder and so much closer to home. Rani ma'am, there is no one like you! You had me transfixed and I was transported right by your side from Norway to India. Congratulations to the full team for this incredible film. (P.S. - I am convinced that there is nothing my fav @jimsarbhforreal can't do - an absolute chameleon.)
The film has been impressing critics and audiences alike since its release. Earlier, Katrina Kaif also praised the film and wrote on Instagram stories. She said, "What an incredibly gripping story, just captivates you, a rollercoaster of emotions – Rani Mukerji, no words to describe your brilliance, spellbound. Huge congratulations to the entire team." She also called it a "must-watch".
Actor Vicky Kaushal also praised the film on Instagram and wrote, "Makes your heart go out to families which have gone through the ordeal for real! Brilliantly told and performed. Hats off to #Rani Mukherjee for bearing her soul out... also Jim Sarbh, Anirban Bhattacharya, and the entire ensemble cast for their nuanced performances. Ashhima Chibber you are going to make people cry and love you for it. Congrats Nikkhil Advani."
The film has been doing well at the box office in India and internationally including in Norway.
