A magician to the audiences, a national award-winning actor and a prized possession of Bollywood; Manoj Bajpayee has acted in several critically acclaimed films like Alighar, Gangs of Wasseypur, Gali Guleiyan, Satya and Rajneeti to name a few.


However; the actor who recently won an award for the best actor at the New York Film Festival took to his Twitter account to show his disapproval of the so-called mainstream cinema award ceremonies for not considering his films even in the nomination lists.


Posting a picture of his highly acclaimed film; Gali Guleiyan, Bajpayee captioned it as," So used to the fact that all the films of mine which are highly acclaimed nationally and internationally don't even get a place in the nominations list of so-called big mainstream awards here, forget about winning. Creative pursuit and exploitation continue! Gali Guleiyan."


This tweet of the actor comes after the 64th Vimal Filmfare Awards 2019, announced their nomination lists yesterday.
Gali Guleiyan; a psychological drama directed by Dipesh Jain, follows the journey of a man who is trapped in the city walls.


 The film premiered at many prestigious film festivals such as the 22nd Busan International Film Festival and was also screened at the 2017 MAMI Film Festival, Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles, Atlanta Film Festival, 42nd Cleveland International Film Festival, Chicago International Film Festival and the 2018 Indian Film Festival of Melbourne.


Well, we certainly couldn't agree any more with the actor on the fact that critically acclaimed actors who choose films off the beaten track do not get their dues at mainstream commercial events and award shows.
