When filmmakers want to shoot some sun, sea and sand, they head to Goa’s sunny shores. Whether it is a romantic scene or a high action shot, there is plenty of drama happening here.
North Goa characterised by crowded shores has seen popular films like ‘Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd’ shot at Miramar Beach and ‘Ugli Aur Pagli’ filmed at Baga. South Goan beaches on the other hand are often less crowded, pristine and beautiful. ‘Dhoom’ the first movie of the series by Aditya Chopra was shot in Benaulim Beach in South Goa. In 2011, actor Ranveer Singh played an ace con artist, operating from Goa’s beach side in the South in the movie ‘Ladies vs Ricky Bahl’. Ranveer rides the waves on a jet ski to impress the ladies in one of the scenes.
Further South, Palolem beach was witness to shooting of the Hollywood movie ‘Bourne Supremacy’ with Matt Damon, Franka Potente and Karl Urban. The movie opens to a thrilling chase and an unforgivable tragedy that haunts the protagonist Jason Bourne as he embarks on a journey of retribution and atonement.
