In one of the episodes of Arbaaz Khan's chat show, The Invincibles, Helen recalled how Salim Khan got her name included in his daughter, Alvira’s wedding invitation, along with the other members of the family. Talking about the same, Helen told Arbaaz how Dharmendra was surprised that her name was also added to the wedding invite. She was heard saying:

“When Alvira was getting married, and you all had a wedding invitation card printed, and in that card, he said ‘Salim Khan, Salma Khan, Helen Khan and children invite you…' And he took it to Dharmendra ji and Dharmendra ji was shocked to see ki mera naam bhi add kiya hai.

Salim Khan recalled how Salma Khan's father was against their inter-faith marriage

Earlier, in an interview with his son, Arbaaz Khan, on the talk show, The Invincibles, Salim Khan recalled that he wanted to meet Salma's parents as he felt that meeting secretly was inappropriate during their early days of courtship. Salim reflected on his first meeting with his father-in-law and shared that the latter was initially concerned about their religious differences. However, the filmmaker reassured him that religion would never be a problem between him and Salma. Later, Salim and Salma registered their marriage and embarked on their forever journey, but Salma's father did not accept their marriage. Moreover, he didn't even visit them for ten years until their son, Sohail was born.
