Another comment read, "Shah Rukh Khan being casually racist to Ram Charan who is South Indian by calling him idli."

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."
