On whom Aakasam Nee Haddura real story based on?
Despite not being a biopic of Capt. Gopinath, the movie is loosely based on incidents from his life that were taken from his book, “Simply Fly.” Former Army Captain Capt. Gopinath launched Air Deccan, the country’s first low-cost carrier.
A flight for a cost that every middle-class paid person can afford to practically any major city in India. Gorur Ramaswamy Iyengar Gopinath, who was born in 1951 and is the second of eight children, was raised in the small Karnataka village of Gorur. His father worked as a teacher.
After passing his tests for the National Defence Academy, Gopinath went on to earn his degree from the Indian Military Academy. Gopinath served in the Indian Army for eight years and participated in the Bangladesh Liberation War in 1971.
He retired from the service early at the age of 28. After that, he worked as a dairy farmer, a consultant in sericulture, a poultry farmer, a hotel owner, a dealer of Enfield bikes, a stockbroker, and ultimately an aviation entrepreneur.
He first launched Deccan Aviation, a Chartered Helicopter Service. This was done in order to give VIPs access to chartered helicopters.
He made the decision to do something that benefits both the poor and higher middle classes after seeing success in his first endeavour. It was only a dream at the moment because taking that method of transportation required being a VIP or having a firm pay for your tickets.
In the midst of a flourishing Indian economy, his second business, Air Deccan, began operations in 2003 with flights out of Bangalore and Hubli. Gopinath contributed Rs 5 crore from his life savings, friends, and family to the start-up of this airline.
Gopinath was compelled to sell the business to spirits baron Vijay Mallya in 2007 after it began to experience intense competition from other airlines, suffer significant losses, and change its name to Kingfisher Red.
His third business endeavour was Deccan 360, an air cargo company. However, that was also shut down in 2013 since the revenue source was insufficient to make a profit.
In addition to permanently altering the Indian aviation industry, Air Deccan made travel abroad a possibility for all middle-class Indians. Gopinath then went on to run for the Lok Sabha in 2014, however that effort was unsuccessful.
After contributing frequently and controversially to media outlets, Capt. Gopinath wrote “You Cannot Miss This Flight: Essays on Emerging India” in 2017. This book encapsulates Capt. Gopinath’s interests and the breadth of his dedication.
