Indian censor chief rues absence of rating as Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 gets UA, no cuts

As Hollywood blockbusters go, it’s rare for the Censor Board to be lenient, given the violence in most recent films. In fact, Pirates Of The Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge has been granted a UA certificate with no cuts.
CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification) chairperson Pahlaj Nihalani says, given a choice, he would have given the film a PG-13 rating.
He explains, “Sadly, we don’t have a PG-13 rating in India. We only have U, UA and A. While certifying POTC5, we had the option of going either with U or UA, but went with the latter because of its violent content. The ideal rating would be the PG-13, which warns parents to not bring children under 13 to a film. All the Pirates... films are graded PG13’ in the US,” says Nihalani.
