Mumbai, Sep 9 (Calcutta Tube) The solidarity, unity and love within Salman Khan’s family would put even a Sooraj Bharjatya film to shame. Helen, who starred in Vijay Anand’s ‘Teesri Manzil‘, skipped the special screening of the film as she was busy with the screening of Salman’s ‘Dabangg‘.
Teesri Manzil’s leading lady Asha Parekh, who was missing Helen at the screening, said: ‘Why only Helen? Salim Khan saab too acted in ‘Teesri Manzil’! They both were expected for the screening..but couldn’t come because of Salman’s film. In fact, while I was watching the film, Helen called to invite me for a screening of ‘Dabangg’ Sunday.’
There’s no trace of competitiveness when Asha Parekh speaks of Helen. ‘She looked so much lovelier and danced so much better than me in ‘Teesri Manzil’. She looks no more than 17-18 in the film. God bless her.’
The special screening of ‘Teesri Manzil’ saw quite a turn-out of technicians and artists associated with the evergreen film.
While the late Vijay Anand was represented by his son Siddharth, the film’s producer Nasir Hussain’s son Mansoor Khan did not turn up for the show as he was in Ooty. Instead, Nasir was represented by his nephew Aamir Khan.
