Finding righteous currents in turbulent times

Go! Girl! Go!–Cuarenta y Cinco

Helen appears as the sexy cabaret star Loveleena in Agent Vinod, Bollywood’s 1977 answer to James Bond. Born in Burma to an Anglo Indian officer and a Burmese nurse, Helen and her family migrated to India as refugees in 1942 after the Japanese overran Burma during WWII. Famous for playing vamps, Helen starred in more than 350 movies. She retired in 1983 after she married screenwriter Salim Khan, but has returned to the screen in recent years, now cast as a grandmother. Agent Vinod, by the way, was remade earlier this year, emerging as one of Bollywood’s top-grossing films of 2012.
