Films can be used as a medium to raise and address social issues of very grave nature. Shoaib Mansoor took this thought very seriously as his precious ventures Khuda Kay Liye and Bol both highlighted issues related oppression of women rights. Well taking a look at the trailer we can say this Verna is  a step ahead from his previous works as it is about a horrendous and hineous crime and it is definitely related with Women. Shoaib Mansoor recently penned down his thoughts in a leading daily his words were

“Rape is one of the most prevalent and ugly forms of crimes against women in Pakistan. Although the women’s movement has tried to grapple with this scourge and worked with the law makers as well as the law enforcing agencies, the mind set of the society remains the biggest challenge that needs to be tackled. According to Human Rights Commission of Pakistan one woman is raped in Pakistan every two hours. Globally Pakistan has been ranked third from the bottom as the most dangerous country for women in the world.”

He further added

“I have chained all my three films together since they all deal with women empowerment, ‘Khuda Kay Liye Bol Verna’. I sincerely hope it will not only spark off the process of shifting people’s patriarchal mind sets but will rejuvenate the movement against this crime. Most of all I hope that it will at least make women reflect that rape does not rob them of ‘honor’, it is something they earn and no one can snatch it away from them’.


Let’s do this 👊🏼 #verna
