Mahesh Bhatt to make a film on Bob Woolmer

Though the real known cause of Bob Woolmer’s death is yet to be ascertained, the Bhatt camp has already decided to make a film based on the incident.

It may be recalled that Pakistan’s cricket coach Bob Woolmer was found dead in his hotel room in Jamaica within 24 hours after Pakistan exited the World Cup. The Bhatts, now known for making films loosely or closely inspired by real people, are all set to make a film on this.

However, the story line will not focus on his death but rather on a bookie and his love interest who are one of the accused in the death. The lead protagonist will be enacted by Emraan Hashmi while the female lead is yet to be determined.

The film will be directed by Kunal Deshmukh who has earlier assisted Mohit Suri. According to Kunal, he is currently in talks with real life bookies to make the film look really authentic.
