Verna is cleared for screening in the UK without cuts

While the fate of Shoaib Mansoor’s Verna remains unclear in Pakistan, the film appears to be set for release in cinemas tomorrow internationally.
According to an entry on the website of British Board of Film Classification (BBFC), the film has been approved for screening with no cuts.
The BBFC made note of Verna’s scenes of rape and strong threats and has given the film a rating of 15, which means the film is suitable only for 15 years and over Sounds fair enough.
Hum Films’ PR team confirmed that the film is releasing internationally on schedule.
In the US and Canada, an online survey of cinema showtimes confirms this.
Verna is playing in Canada tomorrow at the following venues: Cineplex Cinemas Courtney Park, Cineplex Cinemas Strawberry Hill and York Cinemas.
Similarly, in the US, Verna is running at multiple cinemas, including several AMC screens.
The film is also said to be releasing in seven Australian cities, as well as France and Denmark.
