Golden Kela nominates the most popular for the worst performance

MUMBAI: They are the heartthrobs of Bollywood and their movies were the highest grosser of 2013. But still, they couldn’t impress their critics much. We are talking about Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan, whose movies Chennai Express and Dhoom 3 earned in crores at the Box Office but have been nominated in the sixth edition of the Golden Kela Awards – the Indian version of the Raspberry Awards – that celebrates the worst of Bollywood.


Interestingly, these two are not the only ones facing flak; many top notch actors of the industry are in the list. So while there’s Deepika Padukone for Chennai Express, Sonam Kapoor has been nominated for Raanjhana, and Sonakshi Sinha for R…Rajkumar.


Golden Kela Awards founder Jatin Varma thinks that the movies that released this year gave the jury ample choice for the nominations. “It might be tough for the voters to decide which one was the absolute worst! This time the nominations were especially difficult, because Bollywood spewed out an incredible amount of crappy films and the Indian audience spent a large amount of money on them,” he remarked.


To add spice to the show, a few new categories have been introduced that include special awards like Aakhir Kyun Award, Dara Singh Award for Worst Accent, Bas Kijiye Bahut Ho Gaya, Aap Yahaan Aaye Kisliye Award and Ra.One Award for Worst Premise. These awards will only be announced at the official awards ceremony that will take place on 29 March, 2014 at India Habitat Centre, New Delhi.


The  voting lines are opening on 1 February and one just needs to log on to to check out the categories, nominees, updates and cast a vote.
