Sonakshi Sinha has a new record: she won Worst Actor (Female) for the third year in a row at this year’s Golden Kela awards.

The seventh Annual Golden Kela Awards, India’s version of the Razzies, were handed out in New Delhi over the weekend during a ceremony acknowledging the worst of Bollywood.

Worst Actor (Male) went to Arjun Kapoor for Gunday, while the singer Yo Yo Honey Singh was chosen for the Bas Kijiye Bahut Ho Gaya (Enough Already) award. Singh’s composition Blue Hai Paani Paani from Yaariyan won Most Irritating Song.

Tiger Shroff won Worst Debut Award for Heropanti, while Bang Bang! was chosen for the RGV Ki Aag Award for Most Pointless Remake/Sequel.

Sajid Khan’s box-office disaster Humshakals – a comedy featuring Saif Ali Khan, Ram Kapoor and Riteish Deshmukh – was named Worst Film.

The Baanwra Ho Gaya Hai Ke (Have you lost your mind?) award went to Abhishek Sharma for The ­Shaukeens.

“I am extremely excited to win the Baanwra Award, as Golden Kela Awards are the only awards worth winning in this industry that celebrates mediocrity like no other film industry in the world,” said Sharma. “Proud to be one of the baanwras [crazies]of ­Bollywood.”

Sonam Kapoor, a recurring name at the Kelas, was handed the Why Are You Still Trying award. In the Special Awards Category, Aamir Khan’s superhit comedy P K won for Most Pointlessly Controversial Film. Priyanka Chopra was not spared – she won the award for Worst Accent for Mary Kom.
