Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway Controversy: Team Recounts Alleged Admonishment by Norwegian Ambassador During Screening

Producer of Mrs. Chatterjee Vs. Norway Nikkhil Advani said that the ambassador of Norway was invited to a showing of the film and “admonished” them for it.

The production crew of Mrs. Chatterjee Vs. Norway responded to Hans Jacob Frydenlund’s unfavourable criticism of the movie. The film’s creator, Nikkhil Advani, shared what exactly transpired during the screening to which Frydenlund was invited on Twitter. After the show, he said that the ambassador “admonished” two women. It is unknown if Ashima Chibber, a filmmaker, is among the “ladies” named.

Nikkhil said on Twitter that “Atithi Devo Bhava! is a cultural need in India. It is a lesson our elders impart to every Indian. We offered to screen the Norwegian Ambassador our movie, Mrs. Chatterjee vs. Norway, last night while hosting him. After the screening, I sat silently and saw him criticise two powerful women for choosing to convey this crucial tale. Like Sagarika Chakraborty, they don’t need me to stand up for them, so I kept silent. Also, “culturally,” we don’t make fun of our visitors. For the sake of clarity. Video Affixed.

His post included a video with Sagarika Chkraborty, whose life the movie is based. The ambassador discussed her situation “without having any respect,” she said in the video, to talk with her first. The Norwegian government, she continued, “continues to propagate misinformation” about her. Nikkhil also included a photo from the screening of the ambassador and the film crew.

The ambassador claimed that Mrs. Chatterjee v. Norway has “factual mistakes” and is a “fictional depiction of the case” in an opinion piece he wrote for Indian Express. Moreover, he claimed that it is “absolutely incorrect” that cultural differences were the main contributing element in the case as depicted in the movie. Also, Hans “categorically” refuted the notion that “eating with hands and sleeping in the same bed would be the grounds for placing in alternative care”. He hoped that the movie wouldn’t deter Indians from moving to Norway.

Rani Mukerji plays a woman fighting the government for her children in the movie. The Journey of a Mother by Sagarika Chakaraborty served as the inspiration for the movie. Mrs. Chatterjee vs. Norway, directed by Ashima Chibber, also features Neena Gupta, Jim Sarbh, and Anirban Bhattacharya. On Friday, the movie opened in theatres.
