The censor board may have axed Javed Jaffery's rap song Eggjactly from Sunny Leone starrer Jackpot, the former Indo-Canadian adult film star says it is a family film and doesn't "require censorship".

The 32-year-old, who has shot some bold scenes for the movie, admits that it's censor board's job to see what's suitable for young adults to watch.

At the same time, she feels that Jackpot "is not an A-certificate movie. So, they have to be really careful on what the subject matter is".

Jackpot has been shot in Goa and also stars Naseeruddin Shah. It hits theatres Dec 13.

"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," added the


who entered Bollywood with erotic thriller Jism 2.

She was speaking at the music launch of the film on Saturday.

Meanwhile, director Kaizad Gustad is upset with the censor board for banning Eggjactly.

"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," Gustad 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," Gustad added.
