Humayun Saeed as Dr. Hasnat
The Crown has become even more popular as of late because it also delves into the life and controversies of Princess Diana. Thus, Dr. Hasnat, the doctor with whom she was suspected to be having an affair, was central to her life. This incredibly important and Pakistani role is going to be played by Humayun Saeed and it marks a change in our industry.
To all those asking, Dr Hasnat Khan, had an affair with Diana, but due to family reasons Hasnat couldn’t marry her, they separated. Hasnat was a Pakistani and is still alive living in UK. Humayun will play Dr Hasnat’s role in @TheCrownNetflix . I love the series Soo much 😍❤️❤️

Yet Dr Hasnat was so much more Dashing than Humayun Saeed. Will he do justice to the role ? 🤔 Surely he’s had so much air time in Pakistani dramas that nothing appeals in terms of what characters he’s trying to portray.
