Founder-organiser Jatin Varma said it was fun to collect the list of bad movies in Bollywood. "This just keeps getting better every year! Bollywood never ceases to amaze, and we at Golden Kela actually look forward to the bizarre imagination of some of our filmmakers!," said Varma.
"After having to sit through the excruciating screenings of the likes of Jai Ho, Humshakals, Action Jackson and 'Xpose' amongst many others, we got to the fun part ¿ having a good laugh and listing the nominations for the crappiest movies of the year!," he added.
