The film highlights one of the pressing issues in Pakistan— rapes. The movie shows Mahira Khan’s character’s struggle to seek justice from a corrupt system as a rape survivor.
Audiences are expressing their rage on social media. Here are some of the twitter reactions:

Verna’s trailer is full of implications of how corrupt governments can be, how politicians and influential people can cover up their crimes whilst making the victim a criminal. The movie stars Mahira Khan and Haroon Shahid.
Reportedly, Shoaib Mansoor has appealed to the CBFC. Now, the film is expected to be reviewed by the full board.
A movie helmed by two actresses in different countries is going through the same situation. While Supreme Court has rejected the plea regarding banning Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor starrer Padmavati; the fate of Verna remains undecided.
