Director Anees Bazmee says he was not keen to rope in Sunny Leone in his film because he doesn't want to be "accused of anything risque".

The Canadian adult film star Sunny embarked on Bollywood journey with "Jism 2" and she also did item number in "Shootout At Wadala". Before that she had participated in the television reality show "Bigg Boss 5", which paved her way into the Indian film industry.

There were reports that now Sunny has bagged a role in "Welcome" sequel, which was originally played by Mallika Sherawat.

Bazmee directed "Welcome", a 2007 hit comedy, starred Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif as the lead pair. It also featured Anil Kapoor and Nana Patekar, according to the reports, the two actors didn't feel comfortable working with Sunny.

The director has taken strong exception to the reports that only Anil and Nana, who were to be paired with Sunny in the sequel, shied away from being associated with the former adult film actress.

Said Bazmee: "It's being made out that they are family men with children and therefore felt embarrassed about being seen on screen with her. As if I, the director of the film, am okay with the idea. Let me make it very clear that I was not at all interested in signing her."

Bazmee is known for directing films like "Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha", "No Entry", and "Ready".

When pressed to explain why he was so against Sunny, Bazmee explained, "My films are for family audiences. I don't know about Anil or Nana. But I didn't want her in my film. I make comedies. But I can never be accused of anything risque."

    I like his reply. Sunny Leone is not suitable for his movies, he is king of comedy. If he ropes Sunny Leone, he will be failed!
