CBFC Chief Pahlaj Nihalani Finds ‘The Jungle Book’ Scary; Gives It U/A certificate

Updated on 11 July, 2016 at 2:34 am By

The famous Rudyard Kipling’s novel ‘The Jungle Book’, directed by Jon Favreau, has been given an U/A certificate in India by the censor board.

The film, starring 10-year-old actor Neel Sethi, is scheduled for April 8 release. U/A certificate means that children can only watch the movie if they are accompanied by adults.

According to Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) chief Pahlaj Nihalani, the 3D effects in the film are so scary that they can startle the audience.

Since the time book was wrote in 1893-94, it has enthralled children all over the world. However, Nihalani has different take on it. He said:

“Please don’t go by the reputation of the book. See the film and then decide on the suitability of the content for kids. The 3D effects are so scary that the animals seem to jump right at the audience.”

Further, he added that it wasn’t just the story that determines certification. It’s the overall presentation, the packaging and visual affects which determines the rating.

He said, “It’s up to parents to decide how much of these effects are suited for their children.”

Not only that, Nihalani finds an inbuilt problem to the ‘U/A’ certificate which needs attention.

He explained:

“U/A certification gives the parents the right to decide whether they want to take their children for a film. But how do parents know the exact content of a film when they visit a film?”

He told that they granted U/A to ‘Kapoor & Sons’ but, received objection to kids being allowed into the film.
