The others, who have made to the list of the worst actor (Male) category are: Imraan Khan for I Hate Luv Storys and Break Ke Baad, Neil Nitin Mukesh for Lafangey Parindey, John Abraham for Jhoota Hi Sahi, Vivek Oberoi for Prince. Hrithik for his role of a paraplegic in Guzaarish.
Abhishek Bachchan, who surprised everyone by accepting his Kela award last year, is missing from the list this year but wife Aishwarya Rai more than makes it up for him. She is competing with the likes of Kareena Kapoor and Kajol for the worst actress trophy for her role in 'Raavan'.
The other Bollywood beauties who feature in the list are: Sonam Kapoor for her role of a confused fashionista in Aisha, Deepika Padukone for Housefull, Break Ke Baad, Priyanka Chopra for Anjaana Anjaani, Pakhi Tyrewala for Jhootha Hi Sahi and Kareena-Kajol for We Are Family.
The nomination list for the worst films has been extended to eight to accommodate the bad films that were made last year, which include Sajid Khan's Housefull, I Hate Luv Storys, Veer, My Name Is Khan, Akshay Kumar-Farah Khan's production Tees Maar Khan, Aisha, Anjaana Anjaani and Action Replayy.
The worst director list includes Farah Khan (Tees Maar Khan), Anil Sharma (Veer), Ashutosh Gowariker (Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Se) Abbas Tyrewala (Jhoota Hi Sahi), Rohit Shetty for (Golmaal 3), Sanjay Leela Bhansali (Guzaarish), Sajid Khan for (Housefull) and Vipul Shah (Action Replayy).
The award this year, to be hosted by funnyman Cyrus Broacha, have a number of special awards like Lajja Award for Worst Treatment of A Serious Issue, Bas Kijiye Bahut Ho Gaya Award, Jajantram Mamantram Award for Worst Named Film, The Ajooba Award for Sheer Awesomeness, Black Award for Emotional Blackmail and Sonu Nigam Award for Career Suicide.
Broacha said he decided to host the ceremony in the capital because he owes money to two of its founding members.
"The Kelas are very important. Kelas were carefully selected as they are a symbol of energy. It is a fervent hope of the organisers to inject energy back into contemporary films," the comedian said.
Awards founder Jatin Varma said: "Last year about 3,00,000 people got revenge on Bollywood. And the movies weren't half as bad as this year. So we're expecting a lot more people to vote. Hopefully enough to make our filmmakers sit up and take notice."
