Scoop: 'Verna' has not been banned, it is merely a publicity stunt

Tuesday 14th November 2017

Earlier, we reported that Shoaib Mansoor's film Verna has been banned by Islamabad's Central Board of Film Certification according to reports and is to be reviewed by full board today. Starring Mahira Khan and Haroon Shahid, the film is scheduled to release on 17 November 2017 worldwide.

Reports claimed it has been banned because of the mature and edgy content which has been termed as "indecent" for audiences.

We have now learnt that there will not be a ban on the film and this is merely a "publicity stunt" to get people talking. The film is expected to get official approval before the release this Friday.
