Mahira Khan's luck stuck in censor board
While India struggles with fierce “Padmavati” protests that are getting worse every day, Pakistan is now facing trouble too with actress Mahira Khan's new film “Verna”, which was set to be released this Friday but now uncertain. The film ran into trouble on Tuesday when the censor board raised objections to the film. The ban has caused a furore on social media with fans of Mahira and director Shoaib Mansoor questioning the move. “Raees” actress Mahira made news before over controversial pictures with Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor. But this time it’s all about her new movie. The film, “Verna”, which deals with rape and the plight of women, is still under the scanner for its content and the Pakistani censor board is yet to clear it for release. The Lahore premiere of the film has been cancelled following the CBFC decision to halt it after "unanimous objections" were raised by the panel members, reports Dawn. This decision, however, drew much flak from Twitterati. Filmmaker and journalist Hasan Zaydi wrote: "So #Verna has been banned by the usual idiots on the Islamabad censor board who appar think topic (rape) should not be talked about. Was cleared by Sindh. Going into full board appeal today. (sic)" Mahira spoke out against the halt placed on “Verna” by the censor board on Wednesday, tweeting: “May the power of the voices of the people be stronger than a few in positions of power. #verna” Helmed by Shoaib, “Verna” is his comeback film which according to Mahira took six years to make. Bollywood superstar Deepika Padukone also spoke out against the “Verna” ban, saying it was sad that a few chosen people decide what should be made available to the public or not.
