After all the excitement and curiosity surrounding the upcoming season of Netflix’s original series, The Crown, we finally get to see Humayun Saeed as the mysterious heart and lung surgeon, Dr. Hasnat Ahmad Khan.
Dr, Hasnat Khan is said to have been Princess Diana’s love interest between 1995 and 1997 after her divorce from Prince Charles.
He was allegedly Lady Diana’s ‘true love’ and the man that tabloids claimed she referred to as ‘Mr. Wonderful.
The Mere Pass Tum Ho star has been silent on his role but he recently spoke to Variety about what it was like playing a real-life character and how different Dr. Hasnat Khan was different from Lady Diana.
Dr. Hasnat Khan and Princess Diana were total opposites. He was a very ordinary man in every way and I feel this is what attracted Princess Diana towards him. His nature and simplicity made him special to Princess Diana.
“I haven’t played a real-life character on-screen and to play the role of Dr. Hasnat Khan who everyone knows due to Princess Diana was a huge responsibility,” Saeed added.
He assured his fans “I am confident audiences will love the simplicity of the relationship and how it is portrayed on-screen.”
Celebrities and fans of the London Nahi Jaunga star are very excited about season 5 of The Crown. Here are a few comments by his fellow celebrities and audiences.
The fifth season of The Crown, a show about the British Monarchy, will premiere on 9 November. The latest season is set in the 1990s and has an all-new cast.
Elizabeth Debicki will play Princess Diana opposite Dominic West (Prince Charles) in it and Humayun Saeed will play Dr. Hasnat Khan. Imelda Staunton will take on the role of Queen Elizabeth II, and Jonathan Pryce will essay the role of Prince Philip.
