Blockbusters of 2012 figure in worst film nominations in Kela Awards

NEW DELHI: Contrary to common perception, actors Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Dutt, Ajay Devgn, Anoushka Sharma, Sonakshi Sinha, and Deepika Padukone are among the artistes nominated for the worst acting of the year.

‘Housefull 2’, ‘Son of Sardar’, ‘Khiladi 786’, ‘Dabangg 2’, ‘Jab tak hai jaan’ and ’Joker’ are nominated for the worst films of the year and will vie for the Golden Kela award..

Shirish Kunder for ‘Joker’, Arbaaz Khan for ‘Dabangg 2’, Kabir Khan for ‘Ek tha tiger’ and Sajid Khan for ‘Housefull 2’ vie for the worst directors of the year.

The worst sequels of the year are Dabangg 2, Housefull2, Jannat 2, Jism 2, Raaz 3, Kya super Kool hain Hum, Bhoot Returns, and 1920 Evil Returns.

The Golden Kela Awards ceremony will take place in March at the India Habitat Centre.

The Golden Kela Awards, the Indian version of Razzies - “Golden Raspberry Awards" - for awarding the worst in the film making industry will be awarding the worst of Bollywood in the year 2012. Voting will begin on 1 January at and close on 1 March 2013.

Jatin Varma, Founder, Golden Kela Awards, said, “We have our hands full with some of the finely made Kela-full movies and performances of the year 2012. As expected, sequels topped the chart this year with 8 nominations in the Worst Sequel category. I see a tough competition in the Worst Actor (Female) Category also; voters will have a tough time choosing between Anushka Sharma, Sonakshi Sinha, Farah Khan, Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone and Diana Penty.”

The most irritating songs are ‘Chinta ta chita chita’ from ‘Rowdy Rathore’, ‘Son of Sardar’ from the film of the same name, ‘Anarkali Disco Chali’ from Housefull2, and Hookah Bar from Khiladi 786.

The most atrocious lyrics are: Anvita Dutt for Ishq wala Love (Student of the Year), Amitabh BhattacharyaHalkat Jawani (Heroine) Shabbir Ahmed for Bipasha Bipasha (Jodi Breakers) Shabbir Ahmed for Po Po (Son Of Sardar) Sameer Anjaan for Chinta Ta Chita Chita (Rowdy Rathore) and Himesh Reshammiya for Hookah Bar (Khiladi 786).

Jatin adds, “In the 5th edition of Golden Kela Awards we could not help but Nominate Indian Moviegoers in the Bawara ho gaya hai ke award category for spending more than Rs six billion on worthless films."

Indian Moviegoers have been nominated for ‘Bawra Ho gayaa ke’ award for spending more than Rs 6 billion on Bol Bachchan, Housefull 2, Agneepath, Rowdy Rathore, Ek Tha Tiger, Khiladi 786 and Dabangg 2. Others nominated for this award are Homi Adjania for following up Being Cyrus with Cocktail, Sanjay Khandvi for taking his own awesome Ek Chaalis Ki Last Local, setting it in Delhi and making Kismat Love Paisa Dilli…and doing a horrible job of it, Ali Azmat for sounding like a parody of his former self in the song Maula from Jism 2.

Karisma Kapoor, Chandrachur Singh, Aftab Shivdasani, Shiney Ahuja, Prachi Desai, and Jackie Bhagnani have been nominated for the ‘Why Are You Still Trying?’ Award for the people who surprised us by their presence, even though we thought their careers were long over.

Awards will also be given for ‘The Mera Naam Joker Award’ for Longest Film Of the Year. ‘Bas Kijiye Bahut Ho Gaya’, ‘Beta, Tumse Na Ho Payega’, and ‘Super Hit Of the Year’.

The Golden anti-Kela awards will also be announced for films that were the saving graces by being meaningful while being in mainstream cinema.
