ISLAMABAD -UNS : Mahira Khan said that her movie Verna was banned because of a decision taken by minority.
“There were certain aspects of the story that people did not agree with, but not about the core message of the film. Yes, Verna was going to get banned because of the decision of a small minority, but it did not get banned because of the majority who stood up for the film. To me, that is victory,” the actress said in an interview to The Guardian.
Shoaib Mansoor’s Verna was banned due to its sensitive content and portrayed the state institutions in an undesirable manner.
The decision of banning the movie was met with negative responses from the public.
The censor board lifted the ban after omitting the objectionable content from the movie.
