Rani Mukherji will be seen next in a drama Mrs Chatterjee V Norway, which is written and directed by Ashima Chibber. Zee Studios made an official announcement on Mukherji’s birthday. The project will mark her 25th year in the film industry. It is also the first collaboration of the actor with Zee Studios and Emmy Entertainment.
Talking about this upcoming project, she says, “There could have been no better way to celebrate my birthday today than announce this really important film. In my 25th year in cinema, I have possibly signed one of the most special and significant films of my career.”
Inspired by a true story, the film will follow the life story of a mother’s battle against an entire nation. Rani also commented on how her first film, Raja ki Aayegi Bharat, and her latest one, Mrs Chatterjee vs Norway, are both woman-centric films.
