More on Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway

Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway is directed by Ashima Chibber. It details the story of Sagarika Bhattacharya, who penned her experiences in the book, The Journey of a Mother. The film also features actors Jim Sarbh, Neena Gupta and Anirban Bhattacharya in supporting roles. 

In reality, Sagarika relocated to Norway with her family, and her children ended up being placed in foster care by Norway’s Ministry of Children and Families. She was then told that her children are to remain under foster care until they turn 18. The film is an adaptation of Sagarika’s struggle and eventual victory to secure the custody of her children. It was released in theatres on March 17, 2023.
