Manoj Bajpayee lashes out at mainstream award shows for lack of recognition
Bollywood is a very cut-throat industry and your future depends on every Friday. There is an old saying, which says ‘you are as good as your last film’. Now, Manoj Bajpayee is one of the finest performers in the Hindi film industry and is highly rated even outside India.
Now, National Award-winning actor Manoj Bajpayee on Wednesday said he is used to the fact that all his films which are highly acclaimed nationally and internationally never get a place in the nomination list of “so-called big mainstream awards”.
Manoj on Wednesday vented his frustration and tweeted a poster of his 2018 movie “Gali Guleiyan” and wrote: “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.”
So glad you said this, Manoj Ji. It needs to be said. Again and again. With your performances, you are one of the handful of actors who have carved the path for acceptance of the gritty world that today’s web series and million of viewers have embraced. You are a pioneer. https://t.co/RhFLkMkq3k

Manoj Bajpayee is clearly hurt and has hit the nail on the head. The magnificent craftsman was last seen in Abhishek Chaubey’s dacoit drama ‘Sonchiriya’.
