The award winning, South Asian actor Naveen Andrews stars in the much-awaited motion picture Diana which is released in US theaters today.
Two-time Oscar nominee Naomi Watts portrays Princess Diana. With a brilliant cast, the film takes a deep look into the secret love affair between Princess Diana and South Asian heart surgeon, Dr. Hasnat Khan.
Although the Princess of Wales is an iconic and well-known figure, her passionate love affair with Pakistani heart surgeon Dr. Hasnat Khan remains an untold story. Director Oliver Hirschbiegel aims to change that with this romantic and compelling film.
“Hirschbiegel directs from a screenplay by award-winning playwright Stephen Jeffreys, inspired by the book Diana: Her Last Love by Kate Snell, which was in turn drawn from extensive interviews with close friends and confidantes. The result is a window into the tumultuous, change-filled period from 1995-1997, in the wake of Diana’s shattering divorce from Prince Charles, and at the moment when she stood on the cusp of a different life, evolving into a global humanitarian, a master of maneuvering fame and becoming her own woman.”
