Did Mahira Khan's Verna get banned in Pakistan?

TWITTER

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.

"Verna" depicts a gripping story of Mahira Khan, a girl who sets out to avenge her rapist that also appears to be a son of influential politician - a governor to be exact.

However, CBFC Chairman Mobashir Hasan said that "The film is yet to be viewed by the full board and see if there are any objections".

According to reports, Pakistan's Federal Censor Board has objected to the film's release on Friday.

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

Although reports suggest that the Censor Board there will watch the film today and take a decision, the fact that there is even a doubt in their mind regarding its release has Twitter fuming.

The movie tackles the subject to rape and how the protagonist fights for her rights. The movie is scheduled to be released on November 17.
