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.
It seems like someone is not happy with the subject of Film Verna by Shoaib Mansoor ! The film has banned by CBFC Islamabad before its release ! Film should be release across Pakistan!! if the Gov is a Democratic, then why they always ban such issues from being discussed ?
In an official statement by ‘Hum Films’ ” filmmaker Shoaib Mansoor has gone into appeal with censor board today for urgent relief for his film ‘Verna.’ The film will hopefully be reviewed by full board today and we are hoping that the full board will prevail.”
Meanwhile, the lead actor Haroon Shahid has posted a unique reaction on his twitter:
Mahira also talked to Dunya News and has expressed shock on this decision. Let’s see what censor board decides about Verna. Watch this space to remain updated!
