Superstars Aamir and Shah Rukh Khan's much-hyped films Dhoom:3 and Chennai Express will be competing for the worst film trophy at the sixth annual Golden Kela awards, a spin off on Hollywood's Razzies.

The awards, to be given on March 29, recognise and honour the best of the worst in Hindi cinema every year by audience poll.

Other films that have made it to the worst movie category are Ranbir Kapoor's Besharam, Hrithik Roshan's Krrish 3 and Himmatwala, which is also nominated in the worst actor (Ajay Devgn), worst director (Sajid Khan) and RGV Ki Aag award for the most pointless remake or sequel.

Ranveer Singh's turn as Ram in Goliyon Ki Raas Leela... Ram Leel while his co-star Deepika Padukone, who had four hits last year, has been named in the worst actress category for her outing with Shah Rukh Khan in Chennai Express.

Other than Ranveer, the worst actor category has Imran Khan for Gori Tere Pyaar Mein and newcomers like Aditya Roy Kapoor for Aashiqui 2 and Arjun Kapoor for Aurangzeb.

In the female actors' category, Sonam Kapoor (Ranjhanaa) and her contemporary Deepika have made it to the list a third time. Shraddha Kapoor is giving company to her co-star Aditya for her role in Aashiqui 2. The other two additions Pallavi Sharda for her debut in Besharam and Sonakshi Sinha for R... Rajkumar.

Aditya and Imran have garnered their second nominations in the worst best supporting actor category for Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola. Actor Sanjay Dutt has been named for his role of Sher Khan in Zanjeer remake with the entire starcast of ABCD.

The worst director list includes Sanjay Leela Bhansali for Goliyon Ki Raas Leela... Ram Leela, Rohit Shetty Chennai Express, Prabhu Deva R... Rajkumar, and Rakesh Roshan for son Hrithik Roshan starrer Krrish 3.

Among other categories, the award also has a hilarious section titled Baawra Ho Gaya Hai Ke Award (Have you gone mad?) and the nominees in the list include Aamir Khan for starring in mindless caper Dhoom:3, Vishal Bhardwaj for making flop Matru Ki Bijli Ka Mandola, Abhinav Kashyap and Ranbir Kapoor for making Besharam, Tigmanshu Dhulia for his commercial attempt Bullett Raja and Sudhir Mishra Inkaar.

"The movies that released this year gave us ample choice for the nominations. It might be tough for the voters to decide which one was the absolute worst! This time the nominations were especially difficult, because Bollywood spewed out an incredible amount of crappy films and the Indian audience spent a large amount of money on them," Jatin Varma, Founder, Golden Kela Awards, said in a statement.

The other category includes Aakhir Kyun Award, Dara Singh Award for Worst Accent, Bas Kijiye Bahut Ho Gaya (That's enough), Aap Yahaan Aaye Kisliye Award (Why have you come here?) and Ra.One Award for Worst Premise.
