Srk in reply hmmm no no i dnt want i wil give u the money u pls dnt nominate me okay okay hmmm i already had for ra one last year

  • @john cena, kya baat hai yaar. Man you yourself had a pretty awful year in WWE, you and SRK have something similar in common. I mean just like when you wet your three quarter pants everytime you see CM Punk, the same thing happens when SRK releases his movie after Bhais movie ETT. He gets stage fright and cant perform and you do exactly the same when the wwe universe boo you and boo your ten year old same boring routine. Indian audiences Boooed SRK when he tried his MNIK acting in Ra.One and he was found out to be a poor As for you- You cant see me… Bakwaas, what nonsense you talk here. @star Bhai roxXx always!!!

  • Acc to Srk fans d2 and ett were craps but fact is salman broked lifetime of Srks epic class film just in 5 days Haha Haha Wht a shame to an actor . . Think Wht would hppn if Srk come with craps films like salman then salman wil break Srks craps film lifetime just in 1 day Haha Haha

  • salman bhai will win hahahaha worst actor he”s really deserve just win bhai and congrats to all Sk fan your bhai is nominated

  • @kabir hehehe Finally SRK has done the unthinkable and he now joins Aamir in the ‘200’ Club. SRK fans can rejoice and campain for the Indian Govt to rename Ghanta Awards Day to the SRK Awards Memorial Day- the day when SRK won his 200th Award- the Ghanta award for best Young Loverboy in JTHJ… :P

  • @NAVIN,i am one of the greatest wwe wrestlers of all punk is badly beaten by ryback and now he can’t walk properly.same thing happens to sallu like cm punk next eid he will badly beaten by akshay’s once upon a time in mumbai.RISE ME ABOVE.YOU CAN’T SEE ME.

  • @johncena- nah nah you just proven you know nothing about wrestling and bollywood. John Cena is not a Great Wrestler. Ric Flair (considered by fellow wrestlers to be the Greatest off alltime) has said it many times, John Cena is a marketing gimmick like Hulk Hogan was or the Rock was in his heyday. Cena is popular amongst the kids and mums but wrestling fans know he is Not a great wrestler. Cena cant wrestle and SRK cannot act. Fact- The standard bearers in wrestling today and in bollywood are CM Punk and Aamir Khan. Popular wrestler and actor today are Ryback and Salman. There are good phases and bad phases in both fields I know but SrK and John Cena are living off past glories.

  • Navin yes dude Srk joins aamir in 200 club and 200th award is golden kela award or ghanta award Haha really our Srk suckss s Haha

  • Truth between jab tak hai jaan and dabbangg 2. JTHJ=120cr(2500 screens with competition).AVEARAGE=0.048CR,dabbngg 2=160cr(3500 SCREENS,solo release).AVEARAGE=0.045CR.sallu sucks.JOHN CENA ROX.. And@KABIR, you are a great fool.i will kick your ass.everyone knows except you WHO won diwali battle.jthj=121cr,sos=104cr.I AM THE KING OF WWE.

  • Wow , after reading this article of g-ay team , all g-ay lovers are da ncing like mu-jra , what they can do other than this? , because of every hyped movie of g-ay king srk going to be disaster.

  • This g-ay s r ga y is the biggest shame & disgrace to bollywood with his cheap 5th rate movies like mmsab,baazigaar,ddlj,kkhh,kank,oso,ra.1,don 1&2, jthj and others. Shame on s r ga y for degrading bollywood.

  • John cena Haha y takin with official figure dnt have enough guts to take out with boi figure huh Haha and whole india knw sos won the battle and just thanks to yash ji death sympathy and festival holiday release and more screen than sos that helped jthj to cross 101.57cr just 1.57cr higher than 100cr is this for u people is great achievement then we can understand hw bad is Srks present status and for us its big big shame

  • John cena just look at ur calculation dis shows hw dumb and illiterate ur . . U idiot weather same 2500 or 3500 screens will remain til the end week of lifetime collection huh dis screens only available on its 1st week . .

  • Srk deserved to be nominated in this precious category…Its big insult for him that he didn’t get.btw It doesn’t matter to Salman either he nominated for filmfare or any ghanta award.but yeah this list is incomplete without Srk.WTF is Sanjay & Rishi doing there…idiots jury panel

  • Hey srk,hrithik,amir fans,dont comment here…….,ghanta awards is only for our wrst actor sallu bhai…..wrst actor rockzz..hihi

  • Nkp yes salman is worst actor but being worst actor he breakin best superb actor Srks best class films lifetime collectio in just 5days Haha think Wht would hppn if he act like other great actor Haha Haha

  • @nkp. For your kind information srk paid 20 lakhs for salman’s 2 movies, 16 lakhs for akki’s 4 movies & 6 lakhs for ajay’s 3 movies to the jury (who all are his puppets) to have their names on this list. So srk paid 42 lakhs for this but more suprisingly he spent 4.2 CRORES for not having his name on this list (as he was the sure shot winner of both the GOLDEN KHELA & GHANTA awards). That’s srk for you. Anyway srk has already bought the THE GOLDEN KHELA AWARD as he did during ra.1 (srk thinks that by buying this golden khela award which may weigh 1kg gold(31 lakhs) he may clear atleast some losses faced by the distributors in india for his epic jthj).

  • Most funny reality scene of the year
    Srk to jury member hmmm pls give me this ghanta and kela award Bcoz i wil reach to 200 awards from these 2 awards pls i knw this year i wont get any best actor awards so pls hmmm give me i want to be in 200 club hmmm

  • Breaking news : g-ay king srk paid one night with g-ay lover rajeev masand team for rejecting jthj and his/her self from ghanta awards.

  • where is greek dog’s name….i think he deserve this award….salman name should be removed n dog’s name should be included…that’s it

  • why would they give awards for the worst..worst.. worst?!!!!! I don’t understand it?!!!!! worst means very bad.. so why reward them then?!!!!!
