Abhishek Bachchan ad man Prahlad Kakkar

Filled under:

At the MAMI film festival in Mumbai, ad man Prahlad Kakkar had got many brows raised with his comment that Abhishek Bachchan’s name should be in Guinness Book of World Records.

Talking about the nepotism and favouritism in the Hindi film industry, Kakkar had said that sons of Bollywood stars get preference in the industry. He had cited the example of Abhishek, who, he said, had survived in the industry despite as many as 17 flops only because his father Amitabh Bachchan is a superstar.

Kakkar’s comment obviously didn’t go down well with Abhishek, whose name, incidentally, is already in Guinness Book of World Records for making maximum public appearances in 12 hours while promoting Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Delhi 6 in 2009.

"I love Prahlad Kakkar, he should be a stand-up comic not an ad-filmmaker. Maybe then someone will take him seriously! This coming from a man who makes commercials with his own son. Hmmm. Oh ya, Prahlad, I'm already in the Guinness book of world records and a very proud son. I hope you give your sons an opportunity to say the same someday," Abhishek wrote on his twitter page.
