Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan was named the worst actor and Sonam Kapoor the worst actress at the third annual Golden Kela Awards on March 12 night, a spin-off of Hollywood’s Razzies awards, which recognizes the worst in cinema.

Bawra Ho Gaya Hai Ke award (Have You Gone Nuts) was given to actor Ben Kingsley for his participation in the film Teen Patti.
However, there was a special category of “Anti-Kela” awards for the films that were the saving graces of 2010. The awards were for the films that were meaningful and entertaining, while still being in the mainstream.
Those awarded in this category were Udaan, Ishqiya, Love, Sex our Dhoka, Do Dooni Chaar, Peepli Live and Tere Bin Laden.
“I think we should learn to make fun of our own work and I think it’s just fun although it’s tough because we make a lot of bad films. It will be easy to choose good films, but it will be difficult to choose worst work,” said Vishal Bhardwaj, producer of Ishqiya, who was present at the award ceremony hosted by Cyrus Broacha in Rockdome at the Ambience Mall in Gurgaon.
Ishqiya director Abhisek Chaubey added: “Nobody wants to admit that they have made the worst film and coming here would be admitting it, nobody really wants to believe that they did something worst. But really hope people, who are nominated, see the lighter side of it and come here.”
Small-budget film Udaan swept this year’s prestigious Filmfare awards and here also it won the Anti-Kela for being 2010’s “saving grace.”
“Being given an award by people, who are looking for bad stuff in films means a lot,” said director Vikram-aditya Motwane in a video message.
