Helen has also played several dramatic roles and has been nominated for several Filmfare awards. She has appeared in some of the most iconic movies of the Indian cinema like Don, Dostana, Sholay and many more.
In 1999, Helen was bestowed with the Filmfare Lifetime Achievement Award. Helen was also given the Padma Shri by the Indian government in the year 2009, honouring her as a civilian.
With a career span of four decades and acting work panning more than 160 films, Bindu is one of the most memorable actresses from the 1970's. She is most remembered for her role of Shabnam in Kati Patang. Bindu's success story started from Ittefaq and Do Raaste in 1969. Her cabaret dance on the song, 'Mera naam Shabnam' won her much fame. Bindu's performance as a seductress in several films fetched her a string of hits. But this didn't stop her from experimenting other roles and proving her mettle there too. And who can ever forget her role as the Villains moll in Zanjeer as Mona Darling? Bindu has also done several comic roles and has been nominated for quite a few Filmfare awards.
