Shah had earlier stated that he felt feared the future of his children in a country where a cow was was given more importance as compared to issue of the death of a police officer. Jani's response to this was promptly to book the actor to Karachi on 14 August (Pakistan's Independence Day).

As per reports, Jani was of the opinion that if Shah felt unsafe in India, it would be best for the actor to leave the country as India would then have one less 'traitor'.

Jani added that in case Shah did not wish to travel to Pakistan, he should read the Hindu hymn of Hanuman Chalisa as BJP MLC Bukkal Nawab had already stated that Hanuman was Muslim.

Shah had in the past, expressed his opinion on the Bulandshahr violence where an alleged cow slaughter incident led to the death of a police inspector. Naseeruddin Shah had mentioned that the toxic environment born out of hate crimes and intolerance was a major cause of concern to him and that he worried for the days to come.
