New Delhi: Bollywood star Abhishek Bachchan has hit back at ad-man Prahlad Kakkar`s comment that the actor should be in the Guinness Book of World Records for standing strong despite delivering 17 flops.

"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," Abhishek posted on micro-blogging site Twitter.

Kakkar, who made Abhishek`s wife, actress Aishwarya Rai, famous as Sanju in a 1993 TV commercial for Pepsi, took a jibe on Abhishek at the Mumbai Film Festival.

Taking a pot-shot at Abhishek, the adman said: "Abhishek Bachchan has 17 flops in a row and is still going strong. He is unique and should be in the Guinness Book of Records."

In return, Abhishek commented: "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."

In February 2009, Abhishek broke the Guinness` world record for maximum public appearances in 12 hours while promoting Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra`s ‘Delhi 6’.
