'The Lunchbox', 'Shahid' to get Anti-Kela award
"Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns", "Go Goa Gone", "The Lunchbox" and "Shahid" will be honoured with an Anti-Kela Award each for being boons of Bollywood in 2013.
The award will be given out by organisers of the annual Golden Kela Awards, the Indian Razzies, which honours the worst in the filmmaking industry in the West.
Anti-Kela Awards are the special awards given by Golden Kela team to the films that are meaningful and entertaining, while still being in the mainstream.
"Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns" is being lauded for being "the only real sequel made last year", while "Go Goa Gone" will be awarded for being "India's first ever zombie comedy and stoner film in one nice package".
Irrfan-starrer "The Lunchbox" will get the Anti-Kela for "showing the world that Indian films are not all song and dance", and "Shahid", on real-life slain lawyer Shahid Azmi, will be awarded for "being the best biopic made by Bollywood in a long time".
"The Kela Awards are not just about highlighting the worst performances of the year, we feel it is also our duty to point out some of the great work being done in the Indian film industry, therefore the Anti-Kelas," Anant Singh, creative head, Golden Kela Awards, said in a statement.
The 6th Annual Golden Kela Awards ceremony will take place March 29 at India Habitat Centre here.
Apart from announcing the worst Bollywood performances of 2013 and the Anti-Kela Awards, some special awards will be also announced at the official ceremony too.
Golden Kela awards started in 2009, whereas Anti-Kela Awards were introduced by Golden Kela team in 2011.
