Rani Mukerji was honored with the Star of the Year award at the News18 Showsha Reel Awards on March 9 at the Taj Lands End.

Rani was present at the glittering event to accept the award. She flashed her biggest smile as she went up to the stage to receive the honour. Rani has time and again mentioned that the film is very close to her heart. Earlier, in a statement, she had said, “I feel incredibly proud and grateful that Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway has been embraced and loved by audiences worldwide. It’s a universal story that showcases the power of a mother’s shakti,” Mukerji said in a statement.”
