The The Golden Kela Awards of 2015, the show which honours the worst in Indian cinema in a lighter vein was truly a cracker of a ceremony. The awards are similar to the The Raspberry Awards of Hollywood.
While Arjun Kapoor was bestowed with the Worst Actor (Male) award for ‘Gunday’ & everything else, Sonakshi Sinha won the Worst Actor (Female) award hands down, for ‘Action Jackson’, ‘Lingaa’ and ‘Holiday’. This was a hat-trick for her as she sweeps the award for the third consecutive year.
The 7th edition of the Annual Golden Kela Awards ceremony was held at India Habitat Centre on March 14, where it honoured the worst in Indian cinema in a lighter vein.
Jatin Varma, Founder, Golden Kela Awards, said, “We obviously do not wish to hurt any sentiments with these awards! We only hope that those who receive the awards take it in jest and look forward to creating a better experience for their fans!”
Yo Yo Honey Singh was chosen for the Bas Kijiye Bahut Ho Gaya Award while his composition ‘Blue Hai Paani Paani’ from ‘Yaariyan’ got the Most Irritating Song award.
Tiger Shroff failed to impress with ‘Heropanti’ and was accredited with the Worst Debut Award, while ‘Bang Bang!’ was chosen for the RGV Ki Aag Award for Most Pointless Remake/Sequel. ‘The Ice Cream’ song from ‘Xpose’ got Shabbir Ahmed the Most Atrocious Lyrics award, and the Golden Kela team is still scratching their heads over the existence of the song in the movie.
‘Humshakals’, seems it was too much for the audience to digest so it had to be presented with the Worst Film award.
The Baawra Ho Gaya Hai Ke Award went to Abhishek Sharma for ‘The Shaukeens’, for his selection of remaking a movie without knowing where & how to go about it and ending up making a complete mess of things. On winning this Award, Abhishek Sharma, Director, ‘The Shaukeens’, quoted, “I am extremely excited to win the Baanwra Award, as Golden Kela Awards are the only awards worth winning in this industry that celebrates mediocrity like no other film industry in the world. Proud to be one of the baanwras of bollywood! ”
