Box office: 'Mrs. Chatterjee Vs Norway' displays steady momentum

Why does this story matter?
Featuring actor Rani Mukerji in the lead role, the film is inspired by the true story of an Indian immigrant mother Sagarika Chakraborty, whose children were forcibly taken away by the Norwegian government. The Ashima Chibber directorial is an emotional social drama—a genre that struggled to survive in theaters post-pandemic. It's now up to word-of-mouth publicity to drive Mrs. Chatterjee Vs Norway to success.
'Mrs. Chatterjee Vs Norway' collected Rs. 3cr on Day 3
With each passing day, Chibber's directorial recorded a positive trend and strong momentum. On Day 2, the film earned Rs. 2.5cr and on the third day, the film registered Rs. 3cr (India nett) at the box office. With this, the total collection stands at Rs. 6.73cr at the domestic box office. Meanwhile, the film had an overall 24.43% Hindi occupancy on Sunday, reports suggested.
