KARACHI: The Verna release controversy has taken the entire nation by storm. Earlier, the Lahore premiere was cancelled and then the Karachi premiere was called off as well because the film producers hadn’t received the censor board certificate.

‘Verna’ to release internationally but not in Punjab

The film was released on November 17 in UK and the US, as promised, however, the Sindh Censor Board took some time and eventually issued the certificate earlier the morning of the scheduled release.
