Shoaib Mansoor’s latest feature film Verna is all set to be released today after the Appellate Tribunal viewed and approved it and passed it without any cuts and mutes.

The film ran into trouble with the CBFC (Central Board for Film Certification) earlier this week when it was deemed ‘too bold’ for the audience.

The Censor folks in Islamabad recommended a few cuts and mutes which were rejected by the director Shoaib Mansoor who already has Khuda Key Liye and Bol to his credit.

The film which didn’t have many issues with the Censor people in Sindh will be previewed by Censor Board in Lahore later in the day, hopefully paving way for a release in the largest province of Pakistan.

It is to be noted that Verna has already been cleared for viewing internationally where it will be opening to the audience from today.

Verna stars Mahira Khan and Haroon Shahid as the lead couple who drift apart after a horrific incident that threatens to tear them and their families apart.

The Censor people in Islamabad had issues with the ‘politically correct’ storyline where the son of a Governor is shown to be the main antagonist.
