Ajay Devgn and Sonakshi Sinha were announced the worst actors of 2013 at the Golden Kela (banana in Hindi) Awards held in Mumbai on Saturday. Even Aamir Khan won an award for his performance in Dhoom 3.
Now in its sixth year, the Golden Kela Awards honoured the worst actors in Bollywood at an event held at the India Habitat Centre.
Devgn won the worst actor award for Himmatwala, which was also named the worst film, and Sinha was cited for 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 of the Golden Kela Awards, said in a statement.
The honour for the worst actor in a supporting role went to Aditya Roy Kapoor for Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandes and Amisha Patel jointly won the worst supporting actor (female) for Race 2.
As part of the special awards, Padukone also won the 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 Khan 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.
