Bollywood's former dancing queen Helen will be seen after a long hiatus in debutant director Rajiv Sharma's 'Bachpan', a musical family saga seen from the perspective of children.

Said Helen, who plays a grandmother in the film: 'The script is simply amazing. When I read it, I was so overwhelmed that I decided I had do it.'

She added: 'I recently saw the rushes of 'Bachpan' and I immensely liked the way the movie has shaped up.'

Sharma had earlier assisted directors like Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Satish Kaushik, and was also a creative director with Firoz Nadiadwala.

He had always visualised Helen playing the character of the grandmother in the film.

The actress has played a grandmother before in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Khamoshi'.

'The film begins by exploring storytelling from the viewpoint of kids from the point where 'Taare Zameen Par' ends,' said a trade insider who had seen the rushes.
