Salim Khan From a broken marriage to falling in love with Helen, here are some lesser-known facts about him.

Salim Khan is a famous Indian actor, film producer, and screenwriter in the Hindi film industry. His full name is Salim Abdul Rashid Khan. Salim was born in Indore on November 24, 1935, and his grandfather Anwar Khan came to India from Afghanistan. He was a part of the army during the British period and settled in Indore in search of employment. When Salim was only 9 years old, his mother passed away. She had suffered from tuberculosis for four years before her death, and so it was forbidden for young children to come near or hug her, so the boy Salim had little contact with his mother even before her death.

His father died in 1950 when Salim was 14 years old, and later he had no elder’s hand on his head, only his siblings’. The financial conditions of his house were fine, but he did not get the love of his childhood. When Salim was in college, friends encouraged him to try his luck in films.

The marriage of Salim and Helen used to cause problems in the house.

Salim Khan and Salma had four children: Salman Khan, Arbaaz Khan, Sohail Khan, and Alvira. Salim’s family was living a happy life with his children until Salim fell in love with Helen, the first item girl and dancer in Hindi cinema. Salim Khan married Helen in 1981. After the marriage, there was a lot of estrangement in Salim’s family.

Now the whole family, including Salma, loves Helen.

But it is said that time heals every wound on its own. Seeing Helen’s nature, everyone, including Salim Khan’s wife Salma, made her their own. Now the situation is such that Salman Khan does not forget to wish Helen and Salma on Women’s Day and Mother’s Day. Salim Khan and Helen do not have any children. Helen now stays away from Limelight.
