As the award season nears, national award-winning actor Manoj Bajpayee taking a dig on the popular award ceremony on Wednesday said he is used to the fact that all his films never get a place in the nomination list of the mainstream awards.
Manoj on Wednesday 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."
