This Interesting Detail About The Poster Of Mahira's New Movie Makes Us Want Answers RIGHT NOW

By Sarah Babar | 5 Sep, 2017

Mahira Khan and Haroon Shahid starrer ‘Verna’ has been the talk of the town, as of late. Directed by the ShoMan himself, Shoaib Mansoor, the film is being hailed as a turning point for Pakistani cinema. And we all know Shoaib Mansoor has the power to do that, given that it was his film, ‘Khuda Ke Liye’ that was credited as being the ‘revival of Pakistani cinema’.

Shoaib Mansoor has a knack for tackling social issues through his work, and Verna looks no different

When the poster first dropped, people went crazy and couldn’t stop gushing over how intense Mahira looked.

There were endless lines of praise from all over the world, including Mahira’s former director, Rahul Dholakia


On a closer look, we discovered there was something else going on with the poster, as well

For almost every letter of VERNA, there is another written on top of it. It’s almost like Shoaib Mansoor left us some Easter eggs on the poster.
