On May 2014, Mukherjee was hospitalized after an alleged suicide attempt. Under strong local protest, Kolkata police detained Mukherjee's boyfriend Sumon Mukhopadhyay. On 4 November 2014, she was caught on CCTV cameras tucking in a gold earring worth $255 (Rs.12,139) in her handbag at a jewellery showroom in a posh mall in Singapore. The shop owner filed a complaint against Mukherjee to the organizer of the film festival, but no police complaint was lodged against her. Mukherjee denied the charge and claimed that it might have happened “accidentally”.
