Website http://www.theghantas.com

The Ghanta Awards (sometimes abbreviated as The Ghanta) is an award presented in recognition of the worst in film in Bollywood.[1] Founded by Prashant Rajkhowa and Karan Anshuman[2][3][4][5] in 2010, the annual Ghanta Awards ceremony in Mumbai takes place about the same time as other major Bollywood awards. The term ghanta, which literally means bell,[6] is used in its more irreverent forms. The awards themselves are a large golden bell that is typically used for idol worship.

INvision Entertainment exclusively holds the IP rights for the Ghantas Since 2013.

The Ghanta Awards is a live show shaped by online voting by the audience. The public can vote on 13 'worst of' categories.[7]

The first Ghanta Awards ceremony was held in February 2011 at Tian Santorini[6] to honour the worst in film of the 2010 film season.[8] The last 2 editions have been held at J W Marriott on 15 February 2013 & 14 March 2014 respectively. The Ghanta Awards 2015 are slated to be held at the same venue on 8 March 2015.

Awarding process[edit]

Earlier, mainstream media film critics such as Rajeev Masand and Karan Anshuman[9] picked the nominees and put them out for public vote on the awards' website. Voting closed a day before the event. Thousands of film enthusiasts usually participate in voting.[10] Since 2014, the nominees have been decided by an internal team of professional writers and film enthusiasts at the company that manages the event.

Ceremony[edit]

The ceremony, typically held around the same time as other popular Bollywood film awards, is hosted by stand-up comedians of repute (the comedy group East India Comedy since 2014) and is interspersed with sketches mocking the worst film of the year nominees.[11]

Collecting in person

Most winners do not attend the ceremony to collect their awards. Notable exceptions include Sonam Kapoor (Mausam/WTF Was That) and Ritesh Deshmukh (Grand Masti/That's Anything But Sexy).
