Censor board bans Mahira Khan’s ‘Verna’ reportedly for rape scenes

Updated 15 Nov, 2017

Pakistani actress Mahira Khan’s upcoming movie ‘Verna’ has been banned by the Censor Board in Pakistan for apparently having rape and violent scenes in it. However, this ban is not going too well with the twitter users, especially the women groups.

Shoaib Mansoor directed movie is based on the most common and under voiced social issue, rape and sexual harassment on women. However, it seems like the Central Board of Films Censor (CBFC) is having some issues with the film.

‘Verna’ was supposed to be premiered in Lahore on Tuesday but after the board failed to issue the certificate for its release, the premiere was called off.

On an unverified twitter account of CBFC Chief Mobashir Hasan, a tweet was shared announcing the ban on the movie. "Verna banned by the #CBFC pending further appeal," according to the tweet.

The decision is not going down well with fans, as many took to Twitter to express their disappointment and reacted to the situation with hash tag ‘#StandforVerna’. The fans have slammed the ban by voicing out their anguish over the Censor Board and are criticising their double standards.

Mahira and Haroon Shahid's movie 'Verna' was initially supposed to release on the 17th November but the movie has postponed its release date till further notice.
