Salma Khan was Salim Khan's first wife. Even though he later got married to Helen, the Khan family lives together and get along really well with each other. Last year, on Salma's 80th birthday her daughters Arpita and Alvira hosted a grand party for her. Helen was also present at the party. Salma and Helen have also been spotted together for public events.
Helen has immense respect for Salma Khan. Talking about an incident that proves the same, Helen shared on Arbaaz Khan's chat show, "In the beginning, what I used to do, you know when I used to pass Bandstand, and I would know sometimes Mummy [Salma] is standing on the balcony, I would duck right down so she would not see me and think that the car would be empty going past your house. I used to keep her respect so much."
Arbaaz revealed that the family has reached a stage where if Helen doesn't turn up for any family events or even normal lunches, the first phone that comes through is from Salma asking her why she could not make it. Arbaaz mentions, "God has been kind that our family has taken so much of emotional upheaval yet managed to stay together".
