Aamir, Ajay, Sonakshi win Golden Kela Awards
Ajay Devgn and Sonakshi Sinha were adjudged the worst actors of 2013 at the Golden Kela Awards held earlier in Mumbai today, Saturday 29 March 2014. Even Aamir Khan won an award for his performance as the principal antagonist in Dhoom:3.
The Golden Kela Awards are Bollywood's equivalent of Hollywood's Razzies in that they 'honour' the worst in Bollywood every year. Unsurprisingly, not many of the nominees show up to collect their trophies, however, Abhishek Bachchan, who's been 'honoured' in the past has sportingly tweeted about about his 'victory' at the mock award ceremony.
Ajay won the worst actor award for Sajid Khan's abysmal remake Himmatwala, which was also named the worst film while Sonakshi was 'honoured' for her hammy turn in the crass and regressive R...Rajkumar.
"In Bollywood today, the box office figures have no correlation to the quality of the film. Our sincerest hope is that 10 years down the line, the figures will be forgotten, while the 'Kelas' they got are remembered,” Anant Singh, creative head, Golden Kela Awards, said in a statement.
The honour for the worst actor in supporting role went to Aditya Roy Kapoor for Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani while Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandez and Amisha Patel jointly won the worst supporting actor (female) for Race 2.
As part of the special awards, Deepika also won Dara Singh award for the worst accent for Chennai Express.
The Kela for the worst director went to Sanjay Leela Bhansali for Goliyon Ki Raas Leela...Ram Leela.
The Baawra Ho Gaya Hai Ke award went to Aamir for Dhoom:3.
"Aamir Khan once said that he loves the Kela Awards, because all other awards are rigged. Wonder what he has to say about us now," quipped Singh.
“Dhoom:3 also shared the Ra.One Award for Worst Premise with Krrish 3.
Voters chose "Party all night" from Boss as most irritating song.
There were Anti-Kela awards too, honouring some of Bollywood's good efforts. They were given to four outstanding films - Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns, Go Goa Gone, The Lunchbox and Shahid.
