Is Mahira Khan's Verna being banned?

Is Mahira Khan's Verna being banned? Is Mahira Khan's Verna being banned?

While speaking to IMAGES, CBFC Chairman Mobashir Hasan said, "As of now, the final decisions [about Verna] is yet to be taken as per Censorship of Film Rules 1980".

Mahira Khan's upcoming film "Verna" has reportedly been banned in Pakistan after landing in hot water with the country's censor board.

"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. Nothing has been decided and the film is not banned so far.

The Shoaib Mansoor directed movie is based on the social issue of rape and sexual harassment where Mahira will be seen playing a rape survivor. The film stars Mahira Khan, Haroon Shahid and Zarrar Khan in main roles.

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. 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. And while the makers are doing everything in their power to get the film released on November 17, Twitter is enraged!
