Nikkhil slams Norway Ambassador
Rani Mukerji starrer ‘Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway’ releases today and Norwegian ambassador saw the film and didn’t have a favourable reaction to it. Hans Jacob Frydenlund wrote in a piece with IndianeExpress that, “the film incorrectly depicts Norway’s belief in family life and our respect for different cultures. Child welfare is a matter of great responsibility, never motivated by payments or profit. #Norwaycares”
Producer Nikhil Advani along with Sagarika Chakraborty have responded to these allegations now. Nikhil took to Twitter and shared what had happened at the screening. He wrote, “Atithi Devo Bhava! is a cultural mandate in India. Every Indian is taught that by our elders. Last evening we hosted the Norwegian Ambassador and volunteered to show him our film Mrs Chatterjee vs Norway. Post the screening, I sat quietly watching him admonish two strong women who have chosen to tell this very important story. I was quiet because just like Sagarika Chakraborty, they don’t need me to fight for them and ‘culturally’ we do not insult our guests. As far as a clarification is concerned. Video Attached.”
One sees Sagarika in the video saying that the ambassador spoke about the case without having any decency. She said she condemns the statements made by him adding that Norwegian government. “When the whole world can see the bond between me and my kids, the Norwegian Government continues to spread lies about her without even knowing her story,” said Sagarika.
She also said that she’s getting a lot of love from all over the world and people want to come and meet her after the film. Sagarika confessed that the Indian Government has helped her immensely.
‘Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway’ is directed by Ashima Chhiber.
