Despite 18 cuts by the censor board, singer-cum-actress Sherlyn Chopra has said her latest music video album, "Dard-e-Sherlyn", it is "still hot".

"My album is still hot and I am happy that the video will now be shown even on children channels after it was censored, " she told reporters here after launching the new album at a city hotel on Monday.

"Dard-e-Sherlyn" is her second music album after "Outrageous". "The album is my way of portraying pain, " she said adding that "portrayals change with the change in era".

"This is the 21st century and girls do not shy away. My album reflects my style of doing things, " she said talking about the theme of the album.

The singer, however, rued that choreography in the video was disturbed because of the 18 cuts. "I would have been happier if it had been passed without any cuts, " said Chopra, who has bagged a role in an upcoming Yash Raj film alongside Shahid Kapoor and Rani Mukherjee.

She made her intentions clear of becoming the next Bollywood bombshell, while claiming that she is not competing with other hotbods like Mallika Sherawat and Bipasa Basu.
