Their hate story might have been the talk of ‘B Town’ for the last few years, yet the two biggest superstars of Hindi film industry, Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan have something very common between them in 2012. Both actors released over-hyped movies in the latter half of the year, Shahrukh’s ‘Jab Tak Hain Jaan’ and Salman’s ‘Dabangg 2’ have failed to create magic in the box office. However, the similarities don’t end just there, as both movies have been nominated for the ‘worst movie of the year’ award in the annual Golden Kela Awards 2012. ‘Khiladi 786’, ‘Housefull 2’, ‘Son of Sardar’ and ‘Joker’are other contenders in the category.
