A book on Helens life

Penguin India, one of the biggest book publishing houses in India, has come up with a book on the life of actress Helen. The book is titled Helen: The Life and the Times of an H-Bomb and is penned down by the famous writer Jerry Pinto. The book takes us through the journey of Helens life, who entered the film industry in 1952, as a chorus girl. It talks about how Helen who happens to be a refugee of French-Burmese parentage was such a big success in Bollywood. The book makes an interesting read as it explores the reasons why the otherwise conservative families sat through and even enjoyed her 'cabarets' and what actually made Helen so desirable without any feeling of embarrassment. This moderately priced life-history on the siren who introduced the idea of item numbers in Hindi films should be a collectors item if you love to read Bollywood biographies.
