The couple had a difficult time with sons who were not very happy and the tensions brewed for some time. But later Salim's sons, now Bollywood actors Salman, Arbaaz, and Sohail Khan matured and came to terms with it. Helen and Salim Khan have also adopted a daughter named Arpita.

Helen is a big fan of American Gene Kelly and Swedish-American Ann Margaret, who were renowned dancer, actor, and singer by profession.
