Sunny Leone: “There is nothing in Jackpot that requires censorship”

Canadian-based Bollywood actress Sunny Leone, who was last seen in Jism 2, says her next film Jackpot is a family film and doesn’t require censorship as the Censor Board has axed Jackpot’s song “Eggjacktly” from being used in the film.


Sunny has shot some bold scenes for Jackpot, however she admits that it’s censor board’s job to see what is suitable for young adults.

At the same time, the 32-year-old feels that the film is not an A-Certificate film so they have to be really careful on what the subject matter is.

“But I don’t think there is anything in the movie that requires censorship. It’s a very nice family movie that everyone can watch,” she said here at the music launch of the film.

Meanwhile, the director of the film Kaizad Gustad is upset with the song Eggjactly to be banned by the censor board. He said he don’t know why censor board banned the song.

“It’s unnecessary. I don’t understand why the song has been banned – it’s funny and there is humour in it. It is not anything personal it is about the whole country. He (Javed) has not attacked any one person,” he said.

“The censor board should have some sense of humour. It’s just a funny song and he has not offended anybody. He has been very careful to avoid personal attacks,” he added.

Meanwhile, the actor-producer of Jackpot, Sachin Joshi feels he is being targeted.

Reacting to the censor board’s decision, he said; “I seriously think it’s somebody’s ploy against me and I am being targeted.”

Jackpot is also starring Naseeruddin Shah and has been shot in Goa. The film film hit theaters on 13th of December this year.
