Action broadcaster AXN has announced the nominees for the AXN Action Awards.


The Best Actor category features Akshay Kumar, Hrithik Roshan and Aamir Khan. In the Best Actor in a Negative Role, Imran Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Kay Kay Menon battle it out for the top spot.


Nominated in the Best Director category are Murgadoss for Ghajini, Ashutosh Gowariker for Jodha Akbar and Abbas Mustan for Race. These three movies are up against each other in the Best Action Film category.


Kumar who has been nominated for Tashan said, “I am really proud to be nominated for the Best Action Actor for my role in Tashan. I have always been passionate about action as a genre and am happy that AXN Action Awards honour excellence in the field. The action in Tashan has a very edgy and stylish feel to it. The action is also unconventional as I play a very rustic character and am happy to see AXN recognises the different tones that make up the action genre.”


On his nomination for Jodha Akbar, Roshan said, “There was a phenomenal amount of training involved in making Jodha Akbar a success. It is great to see the hard work pay off with my nomination at the AXN Action Awards. The magnitude of the battles and the action scenes gave the movie a legendary and historic feel. While the action was not the conventional kind, it is good to see the majestic and noble nature of the action sequences appreciated by AXN.”


Ghajini star Khan said, “Ghajini is a film that required a lot of aggression that exposes the basic crude emotion of human loss. I am honoured to be nominated by AXN in the ‘Best Action Actor’ category, as the action in Ghajini is more complex and thought provoking, showcasing anger, vengeance and physical violence. I am pleased that the AXN Action Awards recognises the multifaceted action displayed in Ghajini.”
