Shooting of the movie Boomerang in Cyprus
First of all, why would someone come to Cyprus and shoot a movie? Unless they wanted to commit financial suicide, of course. So, i was surprised when i heard that 90 people had come over from India for a month-long for the movie Boomerang, based on the famous movie Charlie’s Angels. A similar movie, Three Roses, made in Tamil based on Charlie’s Angels was a miserable flop. It seems that this movie is a 50-50 venture between a Cypriot Producer and an Indian one. Lets hope that this movie turns out to be good, as it would serve as an easy reference for me to show someone about Cyprus. This move doesn’t have a hero and stars Amrita Arora, Kim Sharma (ex-girlfriend of Yuvraj) and leher (a relatively new face). Btw, it didn’t surprise any of us that Yuvraj had dumped Kim Sharma, judging by the way she was throwing her weight around on the sets(as informed by friends!).
Amrita Arora had given an interview to Mid-day on her return from Cyprus. I have taken some sections from her interview. Have a good laugh!!!
“Amrita says she went to Cyprus in Greece to shoot for Boomerang”. I wonder what the Cypriot producer will feel after seeing this. According to Amrita, Cyprus is in Greece! Amazing geography!
- “The Cyprians are family-oriented people like us”. Just because we are Indians, Cypriots don’t become Cyprians!
UPDATE : Yesterday (June 6th), i received polite comments/emails from the producer of this movie threatening me with legal action if i didn’t remove the photos, as the dress the heroines wore were made from his money and they were copyrighted with him. So, i have removed all the original photos. I have erased from my memory that i ever went to watch the shooting. and what i have written below are just accounts of the shooting which i heard from friends. None of the images in this post are photos taken during the shooting. But, to replace the original images, i went back to alassa park few days later, took some snaps and then used some images of bikes and dune buggys from the Internet and then merged them using photoshop to convey the message. I had also taken a photo of Kim Sharma from the Internet, cut out the face and then superimposed it on one such photo. I hope that she was wearing her own lipstick. I don’t want another producer threatening me for owning that lipstick!
I am preparing a replacement post so that i don’t infringe on any copyrights. Visit this page again in a few days to see the updated post!

So thats how they make demigods. Nice post.
I request you to please take off these images as soon as possible or face legal consequences. The content of these images are copyrighted by Showman International, the production house of Boomerang and you do not have the required permission to distribute any content related to this film in any medium whatsoever. We consider this as a serious offence and notify you that this content must be taken down in less than 24 hrs or face legal action.
hi ..I understand the copyright issues, but these are not images from your website and images distributed by you. These were shot from my camera in a public place. The irony is that we were invited to watch the shootings and the director/producer/cameraman were very well aware of our presence (with our cameras) and in fact, the heroines posed for us to take their photographs. Are they also your copyright ?
Please give me ur email so that we can take this offline.
Also, i find it strange that a prodn company is complaining abt pictures taken in a public place of the shooting of a movie. There are hundreds of personal websites where ppl post such photos “taken in public places”.
We agree to the fact that the pictures were taken by your own camera.Those are meant only for private use and not for public distribution. You are not authorised to distribute this content.This is a serious violation of our copyrighted content.Please take these images down asap.This is our email address email@example.com
This is a load of crap! 🙂
You can copyright whatever you want, but as long as it appears in the public place, anyone can photograph it all they want. As to public distribution of it, that’s allowed too for as long as it is not used for commercial/advertising purposes.
That’s the price for living in a society. If you are afraid of it, stay at home, behind closed doors. And windows.
Oh, and for a studio to use a hotmail.com free email account – that’s pathetic. The domains are below $10 USD / year these days…
