Manoj Bajpayee is one of the most talented actors in Bollywood. It has been more than 2 decades the actor is a part of the Hindi film industry and has given some fantastic performances. Be it a positive or a negative role, Manoj has nailed his act and won the audiences' hearts. 

The actor is currently upset with the mainstream Bollywood award shows for not giving his work a place in the nominations list. Last year, the actor was seen in the film Gali Guleiyan which received a lot of positive reviews. However, the film didn't get enough recognition from the organisers of some awards show. 

Manoj took to his Twitter page to share his disappointment over the same. The Sonchiriya actor tweeted, "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....! @GaliGuleiyan".

Check out his tweet below:

Manoj Bajpayee was honoured with Padma Shri by President Ram Nath Kovind.

Earlier when the news of him receiving the honour was out, the actor had said, "I’m privileged & honoured to receive such a prestigious award for all my film work. I’m grateful and humbled at the same time and I thank each & everyone who has ever appreciated and applauded by efforts that I put into all the characters that I play in films."

What a fabulous actor!! Have been watching his moving performances from my childhood.... and still he hasn't received any so-called bollywood awards because he is not a "star"!!! LOL at them..

Manoj your hard work, talent and film choices don’t go unnoticed by the real fans of cinema who are self aware and knowledgeable. We don’t fall for these kind of stupid traps of mainstream garbage. Don’t worry keep doing your best work. All the best for your future films.

P.S The only films I think are even worth mentioning from the nominated list are Padmavat And Tumbbad! Rest all overhyped mediocre films

I feel sad that aditi rao hydari hasnt been nominated for padmavat in best supporting role category

One to blame is shahruk who has been dancing in the shows and receiving awards for mundane performances. Shame

The audience knows whats up, Manoj. Don't you worry.

Manoj there is nothing new about it. They have been doing it for years. Just concentrate on your work and life. Ignore these corrupt so called mainstream awards.

I so agree with him!
