Harman Baweja was named worst actor and Kareena Kapoor, the worst actress at the 2nd Golden Kela Awards held in the Capital on Friday. Baweja won the Worst Actor award for his role in the dud, What’s Your Raashee?, while Kapoor got it for her work in Kambakkht Ishq.
Launched by Random magazine last year, the awards are a spin-off on Hollywood’s Raspberry Awards, also known as the Razzies, which recognise the worst in cinema. This year’s awards were given by funnyman Cyrus Broacha, who also picked up the Cyrus Broacha Memorial Award. “I’m thrilled. I hope to win this award every year,” Broacha said cheekily.
Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar got the Bas Kijiye Bahut Ho Gaya Award (Please stop it’s enough), pleading him to stop making films, and Hollywood stars Sylvester Stallone and Denise Richards’s got the Baawra Ho Gaya Hai Ke (Have you gone nuts) Award for Kambakkht Ishq.
Rani Mukherji-starrer Dil Bole Hadippa! was given the Most Original Story award for being a clear copy of the Hollywood film, She’s The Man. Filmmaker Kabir Khan and producer Aditya Chopra won the Special Lajja (Shame) Award for the Worst Treatment of a Serious Issue in New York.
