Directed by Ashima Chibber of 'Mere Dad Ki Maruti Fame', the film is a story about the journey of a mother's battle against an entire country. The film is based on the true story of NRI couple Sagarika Chakraborty and Anurup that rocked children and human rights at an international level.
While the film had a good opening at the box office considering its limited promotions, it only got stronger at the box office on day 2 and 3 owing to positive word of mouth. After collecting Rs.1.27 crore on day 1, the film saw a massive spike on day 2 and 3.

Talking about the film at a promotional event, Rani Mukerji said that producer Nikkhil Advani approached her with a one-line script and didn't give her a chance to say "no". "I told Nikkhil that he won't be able to deal with my tantrums. But Nikkhil agreed to all my conditions and didn't give me any chance to say 'no' to the film," she added.
'Mrs. Chatterjee Vs Norway' is produced by Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani and Nikkhil Advani of Emmay Entertainment and Zee Studios. Nikkhil said for him it was important to highlight stories of Indians based in abroad. The filmmaker has produced 2016's "Airlift", based on the evacuation of Indians based in Kuwait during the invasion of Kuwait by Saddam Hussein's Iraq.
