While speaking to Images, Pakistan CBFC Chief Mobashir Hasan said, "We are looking into the "unanimous objections" raised by a panel of CBFC on Verna after the preview under the relevant laws". "Such a mature content seems to have offended a few", read a tweet while another said: "So #Verna has been banned by the usual idiots on the Islamabad censor board who appear to think topic (rape) should not be talked about".

Inside sources told Geo.tv the full board is expected to review the movie on Tuesday night after which a final verdict will be issued. Though further updates on the same are awaited.

The movie tackles the subject to rape and how the protagonist fights for her rights. The revenge drama also stars Haroon Shahid, Zarrar Khan and Naimal Khawar.
