Jamnagar hosted a three-day pre-wedding celebration for Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant, which drew celebrities from all over the world. The attendees at the event included, among many others, Amitabh Bachchan, Rajnikanth, Rihanna, Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Ram Charan, Rani Mukerji, Madhuri Dixit, Karisma Kapoor, and Kareena Kapoor.

On the second day, the audience saw the reunion of Salman, Shah Rukh, and Aamir on stage after a long separation as they gave performances. The group initially attempted to perform the hook step from the RRR song Naatu Naatu by Ram Charan and Jr. NTR. At one point, Ram Charan came out on stage with them and they all performed the song’s hook step together.

Ram was invited on stage by Shah Rukh Khan to groove with them. Shah Rukh jokingly said several gibberish words, seemingly in Telugu or Tamil. A video of the same was shared by Pinkvilla on its Instagram. Ram’s makeup artist, Zeba Hassan, commented on the video, “I’m a huge SRK fan, but I really disliked the way he called Ram Charan on stage.”

As per Free Press Journal, Zeba expressed disappointment towards the actor. Taking to her Instagram Stories, she wrote, “‘Bhend idly vada Ram charan kahan hai tu (Saying names of snacks, Ram Charan where are you)???’ I walked out after this. So disrespectful towards a star like @alwaysramcharan.”

Shah Rukh calling Ram ‘idli’ infuriated the internet as well. Someone wrote, “Shahrukh Khan is being insensitive by referring to Ram Charan as ‘idli’, which could be perceived as a racial stereotype against South Indians.” A other response stated, “Shah Rukh Khan being casually racist to Ram Charan who is South Indian by calling him idli.” A post said, “Shahrukh Khan is being racist to South Indians by calling ‘Ram Charan idli’ after a South Indian director gave him the biggest hit of his career.”

Zeba further shared a statement on Instagram but deleted it later. A part of it read, “It’s funny how everyone wants to pay us ‘lesser’ because we’re from south India whereas they’re okay to pay triple the amount for the same thing to an artist if that artist is Delhi or Mumbai based.”
