Fate of Mahira Khan's upcoming film Verna remains unclear

Mahira Khan's 'Verna' banned in Pakistan? Verna likely to be banned due to its 'mature' content

A member of the Punjab Censor Board said that they had found several objectionable scenes in the film.

Confusion continues over the release of much-awaited Mahira Khan starrer 'Verna' which deals with the issue of rape after the Pakistan government today denied that the Censor Board had banned the film. A censor certificate is obligatory for a film to be released. If latest reports are to be believed, the movie was not cleared by Pakistani censor board due to which its Lahore premiere was also cancelled.

The general secretary of the Sindh Board of Film Censors (SBFC), Abdul Razzaq Khuhawar, told a local newspaper the film was "objectionable" because of its subject.

"The topic is rape, and the culprit is the governor's son".

"The film has not been banned". The film is directed by Shoaib Mansoor, who is known for his hard-hitting movies like Bol and Khuda Kay Liye. "The film is yet to be viewed by the full board and see if there are any objections", he said, added the report.

Verna is director Shoaib Mansoor's comeback project and was scheduled to release on November 17.

A lot of hype for the film has already been created regarding the film as Mahira Khan and Haroon Shahid have been actively promoting it and have been in most of the major cities of Pakistan. The actress also featured in Bollywood movie "Raees" in which she played a character of Shah Rukh Khan's wife.
