I was already thinking about this as a fanfic and then I realized it was Helen’s birthday! So it’s EVEN MORE perfect!!!
Real Story (SPOILERS for the Helen and Olga podcast)
Helen was a wealthy widow and Olga a hardworking Hungarian immigrant. The two women met volunteering at a homeless shelter and started scamming together. They would file for credit cards under the names of the homeless men, and fake accidents for insurance money, and icky things. And then they started offering homeless men a place to live and some money and taking care of them for a few years. In return, all they had to do was sign a few papers. And then they killed them, reaping the rewards in dozens of separately filed insurance claims. An insurance investigator finally caught on to them and brought in the police, the police tracked down a homeless man who survived because he knew in his gut something was wrong and turned down their offer, and finally they pieced the whole thing together and arrested the women.
In my Hindi version, I want Olga to be Kirron Kher, hardworking blunt lower class. And Helen can be Helen!!!! Wealthy widow who wants more money, sits there and plans and files papers while Olga does the legwork to find and take care of the men until it is time to kill them.
Naturally I need a romance, what about Rani for the insurance investigator and Shahrukh for the man who survived? He can be a down on his luck ex-soldier who sensed something was wrong and then teams up with Rani to be her undercover informant as they slowly fall in love.
