14 November 2017

Pakistani actress Mahira Khan's latest cinematographic venture "Verna" is reportedly facing trouble after the Central Board of Film Censor, Islamabad (CBFC) has found its content a little questionable. "The film doesn't have to be banned and can be tweaked and censored a bit to be deemed fit for release".

While sources suggest that the film has been banned by CBFC, the authorities are still saying "The film is yet to be viewed by the full board and see if there are any objections".

Verna is Mansoor's third film, following Khuda Kay Liye and Bol in which he continues his exploration of Pakistan's social ills with a story of a rape survivor's quest for justice. Its subject tackles with rape and how the protagonist, played by Khan fights for her rights. Shoaib Mansoor, director of the film, apparently issued a statement which has him appealing to the board to let the film release.
