Pakistani superstar Humayun Saeed is set to play Dr Hasnat Khan, Princess Diana’s love interest in Season five of the hit Royal Netflix series “The Crown”.
Journalist Hasan Zaidi confirmed the news last night after speculations had risen that actor Fawad Khan would be seen as Dr Khan in the Netflix drama.
“Was holding back the information until Netflix officially came on the record but, since speculation was rife, it’s only a matter of time”, Zaidi tweeted.
Saeed will be the first Pakistani to be cast in a Netflix Orginal which will premier in November 2022. The actor will play alongside Australian actor Elizabeth Debicki who has been cast as Princess Diana.
Following the news, Pakistani actor Mahira Khan congratulated her industry fellow.
However, both Saeed and Netflix haven’t confirmed the news yet.
Dr Hasnat Khan, a British-Pakistani surgeon, is widely known for his romantic, two-year relationship with Diana. In May 1996, she visited his family in Lahore too. Diana’s friends are reported to have described Hasnat as the “love of her life” and to have spoken of her distress when he ended their relationship in June 1997. Dr Khan attended Diana’s funeral ceremony in September 1997.
Season 5 will be about the turmoil of Diana and Prince Charles’ marriage breakdown and the tragic death of Diana in August 1997.
