The Norwegian ambassador claims that “Mrs. Chatterjee vs. Norway involves factual mistakes”

The Norwegian envoy to India has stated that the case of Mrs. Chatterjee v. Norway is fake. Rani Mukerji plays the lead in the movie.

According to Hans Jacob Frydenlund, the Norwegian ambassador to India, the movie Mrs. Chatterjee vs. Norway has “factual mistakes” and is a “fictional portrayal of the case”. He added that it was “absolutely untrue” to claim that cultural differences were the case’s main contributing factor in the movie. Hans ‘categorically’ disputed that ‘eating with hands and sleeping in the same bed would be the cause for placing in alternative care’ as well.

Hans stated in his op-ed for the Indian Express, “With Rani Mukerji’s talent, it is challenging to remain unmoved by it, and viewers might leave the theatre believing that Norway is a heartless nation. But, it is crucial for me to provide the official Norwegian perspective and refute the factual mistakes that this video regrettably depicts as the Norwegian ambassador to India. The case that served as the inspiration for the film was settled ten years ago with the help of Indian authorities and an agreement reached by all parties. The case is fictitiously depicted in this film.”

Rani Mukerji plays the lead in Mrs Chatterjee vs. Norway, which was directed by Ashima Chibber. In the movie, a mother who is an immigrant struggles against all difficulties to regain custody of her children. Anirban Bhattacharya, Jim Sarbh, and Neena Gupta all had significant roles in the film. On March 17, the film was released in theatres.
