Pirates of the Caribbeans latest instalment gets UA with no cuts, censor chief laments absence of PG13 rating
The new film in the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise, Pirates Of The Caribbean Salazars Revenge has been granted a UA certificate with no cuts. But censor chief Pahlaj Nihalani is an unhappy man. Given a choice he wouldve gone with a PG13 rating for Pirates Of The Caribbean. Sadly we dont have a PG13 rating in India. We only have U, UA and A. While certifying Pirates Of The Caribbean our choice was U or UA. We opted for UA because it contains violent content. The ideal censor certification would be the American PG 13 which warns parents to not bring children under 13 to a film. All the Pirates Of The Caribbean films are graded PG13 in the US, says Nihalani. Nihalani feels the rating system needs to be changed. In the absence of a choice we had to grade it as UA which means children are free to watch The Pirates Of The Caribbean as long as they are accompanied by an adult. We feel many recent Hollywood blockbusters like Fast & Furious 8, XXX , Guardians Of The Galaxy and Logan actually deserved PG 13. But we dont have it.
