Former dancing diva, Helen will soon be seen in her Bollywood comeback film MERA BACHPAN, directed by debutante director Rajiv Sharma.
Reminiscent of last year hit TAARE ZAMEEN PAR; MERA BACHPAN is a musical family saga, laced with emotions, seen from the perspective of children. As per one of the trade insider who has seen the rushes of the film commented ''Where TZP ends, MERA BACHPAN begins in exploring storytelling from the viewpoint of kids'
And when Rajiv Sharma, who will debut as a director with MERA BACHPAN, having been an assistant to Sanjay Leela Bhansali and sharing his sensibilities, decided to make a film, he decided to make a film that will reflect the sensibilities of children, where the script will be pivotal rather than direct a normal run of the mill film.
Director Rajiv had conceived MERA BACHPAN, and through the entire time span, visualized Helenji playing the character of the grandmother in his maiden film.
An elated Helen says ''The script was simply amazing. And when I read it I was so overwhelmed, that I decided I had to do it'
She adds ''I have also recently seen the rushes of MERA BACHPAN and liked the way it has shaped up immensely'
Helen will be joined by another actress Padmini Kolhapure and four talented children.
