Talking about her guilt, Helen had said in one of her interviews, “The fact that Salim was a married man did disturb me and I did felt guilty in the beginning. Something about Salim set him apart from rest of the industry men. I respected him tremendously as he tried to help me out without trying to exploit me.”

Talking about Helen’s cordial relationship with the family members, Salim had said, “As kids they had their hostility. But they reacted the way their mother did. As I told you very honestly, it wasn’t as if Salma accepted the relationship happily straightaway and thanked me for it or said, you deserve an Oscar for it. So at that time there was hostility from the children.”

With time, Helen got the much-needed acceptance in the Khan family. Not just Sushila aka Salma, but her children too found her endearing and treated her the same way as their mother.
