If Sunny Leone was hot in Jism 2 (2012), she is perhaps hotter in Kaizad Gustad’s Jackpot, the film that also stars Sachiin Joshi and Naseeruddin Shah. The makers say that this film showcases the actor in Sunny Leone.
However, according to a source, the film was meant to have a steamy scene involving Sunny and Sachiin, which, unfortunately, was edited out at the Censor Board’s behest. The ‘A’ certificate notwithstanding, it was apparently still “too hot to handle”, the source adds.
“The raw energy was overwhelming. And though it is an ‘A’, there is only so much we can show here. It is India,” says another source on the condition of anonymity. Sunny had, however, already said that this film doesn’t need censorship, as the makers are okay with an ‘A’ certification.
A lot of scenes from Pooja Bhatt’s Jism 2 had also been censored. However, the DVD later released with the deleted scenes included them.
Sachiin, however, remains optimistic: “I am hoping the censors will reconsider (the edits), as we have an ‘A’ certification,” he says, adding, “The scenes in the film are very much a part of the script and hence deserve to be there.”
