Ram Charan's makeup artist alleged that Shah Rukh Khan ‘disrespected’ the RRR star with his remarks at Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant's pre-wedding bash in Jamnagar. Zeba Hassan, Ram Charan's makeup artist, shared that she walked out of the grand bash of the Ambanis because she felt insulted by Shah Rukh's comments about the Telugu star. 

Several social media users, however, claimed that Shah Rukh's remarks on stage were similar to dialogues from one of his earlier films, One 2 Ka 4, and were made in jest. A section of social media users claimed that the Bollywood megastar ‘insulted’ Ram Charan publicly, leading to massive backlash on social media.
