Censor board continues to keep Verna's clearance in ambiguity

Mahira Khan's 'Verna' banned in Pakistan?

The internet is abuzz with reports of Verna the upcoming film starring Mahira Khan and directed by Shoaib Mansoor being in trouble with the censor board.

According to reports, Pakistan's Federal Censor Board has objected to the film's release on Friday. "We will view it and come to a final decision soon".

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. The film is expected to be reviewed by the full board today and the Verna team is hopeful for a decision in the film's favour.

The SBFC secretary general said that the movie hasn't yet been issued censor certificate as the board is waiting for the Central Board of Film Censors (CBFC) to opine about it and deliver its verdict accordingly.

Images has reached out to Shoaib Mansoor regarding the ban and is awaiting a response.

It is not yet certain why the Mahira Khan-starrer has been banned, however, the filmmakers have a chance of turning their fate around - if they issue an appeal in time.

The movie was scheduled to released on November 17 and along with Mahira, the film also features singer turned actor Haroon Shahid.
