The 7th Golden Kela Awards was truly a cracker of a ceremony! Held at India Habitat Center on March 14, where it honored the worst in Indian cinema in a lighter vein. While Arjun Kapoor was bestowed with the Worst Actor (Male) award for Gunday and 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 3rd consecutive year. 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 while his composition Blue Hai Paani Paani from Yaariyan got the Most Irritating Song award. This just goes on to show that today’s audiences need a teeny bit of substance when it comes to music! Other winners included “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. It was a disaster three times over with Saif Ali Khan, Ram Kapoor and Riteish Deshmukh dressing up as what they call ‘women’, all through the movie. The kids still have nightmares and 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 and 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 Baawra 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! ”
Sonam Kapoor won the Why Are You Still Trying Award, it conveys that she should stop torturing audiences with her plastic presence on movies and start focussing on something she is good at, like Fashion! We did, however, see some creativity in the horror movie domain, with 6 – 5 = 2, which was chosen for the Khooni Dracula Award for Most Creatively Named Horror Film. Who could have guessed, right?
