  • Our Sallu Bhai definitely deserves to win the award for Worst actor.. Bhai rocks :)

    Both his films have been nominated, this is the bhai power, nobody can stop our bhai.. Please win it for your fans bhai.. Bhai rocks :P

  • Oh and just got to know that our bhai won it last year for his maha great(read stupid) acting in Bodyguard.. Keep it On bhai, win it this year too.. Bhai rocks :)

  • This list is incomplete without the name of srk bcoz srk will not buy this awards like he buys other awards.

  • SRK in JTHJ should have been included in this list too. Anyways WTF was that award should go to JTHJ and the whole pact with Jesus etc etc etc yawn yawn yawn yawn….

    @star Bhai rocks. Yeh bro bhai does rock- thanks for reiterating this FACT at the end of everyone of your comments on every single page. Bhai roxXx indeed

  • GHANTA movie award goes to most hyped g-ay class disaster – Jab tak hai jaan. GHANTA actor on a planet is – g-ay king srk.

  • Our sallu bhai desreves it better :

    ghanta ctor : salman khan
    ghanta movie : son of sardar
    ghanta song : po po

  • In life salman first award last year was GHANTA AWARD. Well deserve sallu bhai. we know u dont know acting but try u will become better than tushar kapoor.

  • Like last year salman this year it again goes to SALMAN KHAN. FOR BEING SERIOUS THROUGHOUT THE FILM THAT MEANS ACTING WOW. TUSHAR N SALMAN r the best actor for ghanta award

  • If you see the jury members who have decided this list then we will understand why salman is included twice. Rajeev masand,karan,sudhish & sahil are well known SRK-SYMPATHISERS (rajeev in particular is a great fan of srk and has been supporting srk for more than 10 years), so for these people srk’s irritating,dumb & crap acting in jthj is a EPIC CLASSIC ACTING & salman’s outstanding chulbul pandey act is a ghanta. If people of india were to vote for the ghanta award, i am sure srk will recieve more than 95% votes. Any way great news for srk fans is that as a habit srk has already bought the GOLDEN KHELA award! So add another golden khela to srk’s name.

  • why your Salman bhai don’t have money to by awards ha…….. U poor & stupid Salman fans u will never know what acting is, you go & watch his crap film only…..

  • Hahahahha These masand n all are just wannabe idiots :D
    Lokk they have nominated akshay for RR (BLOCKBUSTER), Salman for ETT n Dabangg 2 (Can argue about ETT bt no chance for Dabangg 2 n both blockbusters too), Sanjay n Rishi for Agneepath (They both were more praised than Hritik himself). Idiots all over twitter calling themselves critics n jury.
    Indicine shouldnt have posted this bullshitting crap.

  • i think rajeev masand and team are g-ay lo-vers , hence nominations are totaly biased s@-le srk g-ay ke ku-ttein.

  • if salman doesn’t win awards (national & filmfare) his fans cry….if salman wins awards (ghanta) his fans still keep crying…..such a horrible punishment for being a salman khan fan!!! :D :D

  • Haha see the list rishi kapoor and sanjay dutt were nominated for dis ghanta awards . Are they real juries or Wht i think they are blind juries who deserve best actors he nominated in worst category really pls juries dnt come personally some where outside in front of us otherwise u wont able to walk with ur legs for this stupid nomination. .

  • Faltu awards. Acc. to lol sallu fans JTHJ is an epic disaster.JTHJ grossing 240 crores worldwide,3rd highest in overseas,4th highest all time world wide grosser,maximum youtube views and sallu can act only in crap movies.

  • We bhai fans say Srk suckss rocks toh dur ki bat hai but see this salman haters they says bhai rockss dis is the power of salman even he make to praise from haters also. . Srk have to take next birth to get this achievement Haha Haha

  • Arjun do u knw Wht is official gross of bodyguard huh dnt compare jthj official collection with bodyguards boi collection

  • @Outlander, what a comment dude.. hats off to you.. Its such a punishment being a salman fan.. But definitely bhai deserves this awards single handedely.. no SRK aamir or Hrithik can compete with him even though they all had releases last year…

    So the bottom line is when it comes to Ghanta awards out Ghanta bhai rocks :))

  • @Kabir, thanks so much for proving to us yet again the IQ of salman fans… oops sorry they anyways dont have one..

    Poor souls cant even understand a simple ‘pun’.

    Now they will run to google ‘pun’. hahaha..

    anyways our Ghanta Bhai rocks :)

  • Lol I think Rajeev Masand will make sure that buddha SRK will never win a Ghanta award but dont worry SRK fans, award number 199 is just round the corner when SRK bags the Golden Kela award for his performance in JTHJ… Lolzz

  • Salman will surely win all these awards.SALUTE to salman bhai for making 2 epic crap movies in 2012.GHANTA COUPLE=SALMAN AND SERA

  • Star oh english tutor huh Haha y dnt u do some jobs rather dien in indi cine page every time for waiting to ab use salman with ur absurd comments . .
