CBFC has banned Shoaib Mansoor’s film Verna starring Mahira Khan and Haroon Shahid in lead roles. After six years the movie would have marked the return of Shoaib Mansoor in Pakistan film Industry. The last film he released was BOL.
As per an official statement by ‘Hum Films’, Shoaib Mansoor is now appealing to Censor Board for immediate relief for his film Verna. The full board will review the film today and people are hoping that the ban will be lifted from the movie.
The film is projecting real issues of Pakistan, a girl played by ‘Mahira Khan’ is raped in the movie and she seeks her revenge. What would be the reason to ban such movies that portray the real, truthful but bitter aspects of life?
Let’s see some reactions of the people:
Snowflakes at CBFC have banned Verna. Now everyone will watch it through illegal streams and torrents to see why it was banned. The only loser here is the film industry. pic.twitter.com/WSVNnNYCM6

So #Verna has been banned by the usual idiots on the Islamabad censor board who appar think topic (rape) should not be talked about. Was cleared by Sindh. Going into full board appeal today.
