‘Bommi’s bakery’ turns 25

Ever since the release of ‘Soorarai Pottru’ on Amazon Prime Video, Bommi and her bakery have become household names. While Suriya shouldered the movie, based on Air Deccan founder Captain G.R. Gopinath’s Simply Fly, playing Nedumaaran Rajangam (Maara), equally memorable was his wife Sundari aka Bommi, played by Mollywood actor Aparna Balamurali.

The film tells the life story of Captain Gopinath, the founder of Air Deccan. Gopinath’s wife Bhargavi started her own bakery business and made it a success. Now Gopinath is sharing the joy of completing 25 years of Bhargavi’s ‘Bun World Iyengar’ Bakery. “25th anniversary Bun World Iyengar Bakery ? kudos to a life partner who never let go of her dream”. Bommi was the proverbial woman behind the man’s (Maara) success, giving him the necessary financial and emotional support to chase his dream. She ran a bakery and was deft at the business. Self-made, independent and feisty, Bommi stood by Maara when he faced setbacks while pursuing his dreams. Gopinath’s tweet congratulates his life partner for making his dream come true without giving up halfway. It was Bhargavi who provided support, shade and support to Gopinath in his crises in shaping the budget airline ‘Air Deccan’. Bhargavi’s Bun World is very popular in South India.
