Special Salute and Respect to HELAN "THE GREAT CABARET
Bollywood actresses in 50's -70's never desired to try provocative and uncompromising roles outside the cultural norms of the society. In this period Helen stepped into the roles of vamps and vixens in Bollywood movies to steal the limelight of the topmost actors. Still referred as the best cabaret dancer ever, she holds the success flag in her 60s too.
Helen Richardson Khan was born on October 21, 1939 in Burma to an Anglo Indian father and Burmese mother.
Some of her famous numbers are:
'Piya Tu Ab To Aaja' (Carvan)
'Mehbooba mehbooba" (Sholay)
'Aa Jaan-E-Jaan' (Inteqam)
'O Hassena Zulfon Wali' (Teesri Manzil)
'Yeh mera dil pyaar ka deewana' (Don)
Please Pay Respect to Helan for all her works she did.
