Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book has been one of the favorites of children across the world. That was in 1894. Since then it has been shown in different shows–as TV shows and movies.
However, the latest version of it in the form of a movie — The Jungle Book directed by Jon Favreau–has been deemed as ‘scary’ by Pahlaj Nihalani, the Censor Board Of Film Certification (CBFC) chief.
