Here's the question

Amitabh Bachchan asked Lalit, "Which of these actresses was born in Myanmar and later escaped with her family to India during the Second World War?” The options were – Sulochana, Suraiya, Nadira, and Helen. After Lalit quit the game because he couldn't answer the question, Amitabh revealed to him that the correct answer is Helen.

“Helen and her family escaped Myanmar... called Burma back then. In order to escape and come to India, they had to trek alternately through miles of wilderness passing through rivers, mountains and forests. In order to escape from the Japanese occupation of Burma, she had to do this in 1943. She became a popular actress in our film industry. Watching her dance would leave one enthralled,” explained Amitabh.

The megastar added that he's also worked with Helen in a few films. “I had the good fortune of working with her in a 2-3 films. She's a kind and compassionate woman. She used to look after everyone. We pray she stays in good health. She's old now.” Helen is 85 now, whereas Amitabh is 81. They've worked together in films like Mohabbatein, Don, Amar Akbar Anthony, The Great Gambler and Ram Balram.

They famously featured in Asha Bhosle's song Yeh Mera Dil Yaar Ka Diwana in Chandra Barot's 1978 cult action thriller Don. Their last appearance together was in Aditya Chopra's 2001 romantic film Mohabbatein, where they played principals of neighbouring high schools.
