‘The Crown’: Humayun Saeed Cast as Princess Diana’s friend Hasnat Khan

Prominent Pakistani star Humayun Saeed has been cast as Dr. Hasnat Khan in season 5 of the hit Netflix series “The Crown”. Variety has confirmed.

Dr. Khan is a British-Pakistani heart surgeon who practiced at London’s Royal Brompton Hospital. Khan’s 2004 statement to the Metropolitan Police, submitted in 2008 for an investigation into Princess Diana’s death, stated that he was in a relationship with her from 1995-1997 and that she broke up with him after she met Dodi Fayed on a vacation with Mohammed Al Fayed and his family.

In the statement from Pakistan, where he had moved, Dr. Khan that he had considered a life with Princess Diana, but the situation with the press pursuing her every move would make it untenable. Dr. Khan said in the statement that he believed the only solution was to move to Pakistan and that Diana had discussed the matter with Jemima Goldsmith, who at the time was married to Pakistani cricketer Imran Khan and had moved to Pakistan. Imran Khan is currently the Prime Minister of Pakistan.

Dodi Fayed and Princess Diana died together in a car accident in Paris in 1997.

Humayun Saeed debuted as an actor in 1999 with the Urdu-language film “Inteha” and has had a distinguished career across film and television. He is known for the fairy tale comedy “Jawani Phir Nahi Ani” (2015), for which he won Pakistan’s ARY Award for Best Actor, and its 2018 sequel “Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2”. Other notable roles include the romantic comedy “Punjab Nahi Jaungi” (2017, pictured), which he co-produced, and the science fiction film “Project Ghazi” (2019).

Saeed is represented by Hamid Hussain and Muhammad Yaqoob at Action Consultancy.

“Tenet” star Elizabeth Debicki plays Princess Diana in season 5 of “The Crown”. As revealed by Variety, “The Kite Runner” star Khalid Abdalla has been cast as Dodi Fayed.
