Johannesburg : Amidst claims that ‘The Jungle Book’ is too scary for children, Sir Ben Kingsley, defends it by terming it to be “perfect family movie.”

“There are moments in the film which are tremendous gifts to children. Jon knows that when you are telling a story to a child you cannot eliminate the dark side, it’s unfair,” claims the 72-year-old actor, reports Channel24.

Kingsley feels it to be a perfect family movie which will show children that they can overcome adversity.

The actor voiced ‘Bagheera’ opposite ‘Mowgli’ played by Neil Sethi in Jon Favreau’s adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s book. (ANI)
