Finally revealed is the first image of Pakistani superstar Humayun Saeed in the upcoming season of the historical drama The Crown. In the fifth episode of the popular Netflix series, Saeed portrays Dr. Hasnat, the rumoured boyfriend of the late Princess Diana.
Dr. Hasnat Khan and Princess Diana were complete opposites in The Crown ,Saeed said when discussing his character for the first time. He was a very common man in every aspect, and I believe this is what Princess Diana found attractive in him.
Princess Diana found him exceptional because of his character and simplicity.The actress continued, “I haven’t portrayed a real-life character on television, and playing Dr. Hasnat Khan, who everyone knows thanks to Princess Diana, was a great responsibility. I have no doubt that the relationship’s simplicity and how it is depicted on TV will appeal to viewers.
In a previous interview, Elizabeth Debicki, who plays Princess Diana in the fifth season, discussed working with the London Nahi Jaunga actor.She said in a special interview, “I simply adored Humayun – he was such a good performer, and such a beautiful person. “You never know how it will feel when you act out scenes with an actor. So I think I’m really lucky to have him, and I think he does a great job.”
Khan is believed to have been referred to as “Mr Wonderful” by the “People’s Princess,” and in May 1996, she also paid a visit to his family in Lahore. According to reports, Hasnat was the “love of her life” for Diana, and she was upset when he broke things off with her in June 1997. Dr. Hasnat was present for Diana’s funeral service as well.
