Directed by Ashima Chhibber, ‘Mrs Chatterjee vs Norway’ is reportedly based on a true incident. The incident happened in 2011 when a couple’s children were taken away by Norway’s welfare services because they were deemed unfit to have a child.
Reports suggest that the cast was initially supposed to film the venture in Norway. Preparation Heavy Visa was getting difficult for the entire cast and crew of the film so the makers decided to shoot the project in Estonia. Estonia’s ambassador to India and Nepal tweeted a picture. The tweet read, “#RaniMukerji spotted in front of “Sopras” in front of cinema in Tallinn Old Town for the shoot of #MrsChatterjeevsNorway”.

Norway was the original choice of producer Nikkhil Advani and the director. The team wanted to be as true to the source material as possible. Speaking to Mid-Day, ‘Getting a visa for the team was proving to be a cumbersome task in the current circumstances. The makers did not want to wait too long as it is a preparation-heavy film. So, after getting the necessary permissions from Emmay Entertainment and Zee Studios, they decided to shoot in Bio-Bubble in Estonia.’
