Manoj Bajpayee 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."
