With the nominations coming in for this year’s Ghanta Awards, we have some surprising news for the fans of the biggest superstars of Bollywood: Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Ajay Devgn. Ghanta Awards are the Indian equivalent of the Hollywood Razzie Awards where the worst films of the year are awarded in good humour.
Ghanta Awards started to be handed out two years ago, when Karan Anshuman thought that it would be shame if Bollywood did not have a provision to award the bad movies, given the amount of rubbish it produces each year. This year’s awards have got some distinguished nominees to boast of. In the ‘Worst Actor’ category, we have Salman Khan to start off for his acting in ‘Ready’ and ‘Bodyguard’, his arch rival Shah Rukh Khan is nominated for his take in ‘Ra.One’ and ‘Don 2’. Ajay Devgn is another superstar in the lineup for ‘Singham’ and ‘Rascals’. Sanjay Dutt has found a place in the list there for ‘Rascals’, and Vinay Pathak rounds up the nominations with his irritating acting in ‘Bheja Fry 2’.
Well, there are a host of other nominations in the offing which may have been hugely successful at the Box-Office window, but we have to admit that their quality was questionable. Unless Bollywood comes up with original good ideas for their movies, Ghanta Awards will continue taking a dig at it each year.
