By PTI | Posted 23-Dec-2011
Shah Rukh and Salman Khan's much hyped films 'Ra.One', 'Ready' and 'Bodyguard' are competing for the worst film trophy at the fourth annual Golden Kela awards, a spin off on Hollywood's Razzies.
The awards, to be given in March, recognise and honour the best of the worst in Hindi cinema by audience poll. The awards are hosted by comedian Cyrus Broacha.
Other films in this list are 'Mausam', 'Singham' and F.A.L.T.U, which has also won a worst actor nod for lead actor Jackie Bhagnani and the worst supporting actor nods for Angad Bedi, Puja Gupta and Chandan Roy Sanyal. Ajay Devgn and Sanjay Dutt's turn as 'Rascals' has earned them a nomination in the worst actor category where they will be seen competing with Emraan Hashmi (Murder 2), Ranveer Singh (Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl) and Imran Khan (Mere Brother Ki Dulhan).
In the female actors' category, Kangna Ranaut had an upper hand by earning the worst actress nomination for three of her films-- 'Tanu Weds Manu', 'Rascals' and 'Miley Na Miley Hum'. Sonam Kapoor (Mausam), Deepika Padukone (Aarakshan) have made it to the list a second time while Nargis Fakhri is the new addition for her debut in 'Rockstar'.
Worst supporting actors are Pratiek (Dum Maaro Dum) and (Aarakshan), Tom Wu (Ra.One) and the cast of Pyar Ka Punchnama. The worst director list include Roshan Abbas (Always Kabhi Kabhi), Rohan Sippy (Dum Maaro Dum), Anubhav Sinha (Ra.One), Anees Bazmee (Thank You and Ready) and Puri Jagannadh for Amitabh Bachchan starrer (Bbuddha Hoga Tera Baap).
Among other categories, the award also has a hilarious section titled Baawra Ho Gaya Hai Ke Award (Have you gone mad?) and the nominees in this list include Amitabh Bachchan (Bbuddha Hoga Tera Baap), Pankaj Kapur for his disastrous directorial debut (Mausam), Govinda (Naughty@40), Hema Malini (Tell Me O Kkhuda) and director Sagar Bellary (Bheja Fry 2 and Hum Tum Shabana).
"Generally speaking, this year's films haven't been all that bad - which may have been good for Indian audiences, compared to the last few years. However, our 'cracked' team of researchers has dug deep to find the worst of the lot for this year," said Jatin Varma, the founder of Golden Kela Awards. The other categories include the worst debut, the most irritating lyrics, the most atrocious songs, the worst attempt at comeback, Lajja award, Bas Kijiye and a special category called 'Anti-Kela' for films that were meaningful and entertaining, while still being in the mainstream.
