Jannat is based on the biggest controversies circling cricket – betting. Kunal confirms that Richard would be made to look like Woolmer and the reason he was chosen to essay the role was because Richard apart from being an actor has also been a part-time coach and coached the Essex team. The film is partially inspired from Woolmer’s life and his mysterious death after Pakistan team’s defeat at the 2007 Cricket World Cup. It is believed by Woolmer’s family that there is a rare possibility of it being a murder considering the fact that he was a very friendly person.
Apparently, the character inspired Woolmer would be shown dying in the film as well. Now mysterious or not, one can tell only after the film releases.
