Mahira Khan's upcoming film "Verna" seems to be in serious trouble as the censor board has not issued a certificate for the film.

"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. "The film doesn't have to be banned, and can be tweaked and censored a bit to be deemed fit for release", The Express Tribune quoted the SBFC General Secretary Abdul Razzaq Khuhawar as saying. There are reports that the film is likely to be banned.

However, CBFC Chairman Mobashir Hasan said that "The film is yet to be viewed by the full board and see if there are any objections".

Well we hope Verna gets released in the coming days.
