The highly-anticipated motion picture DIANA releases in theaters on November 1 examining the untold story of the secret love affair between the Princess of Wales and a South Asian man, Dr. Hasnat Khan. Starring two-time Oscar nominee Naomi Watts and award-winning actor Naveen Andrews, DIANA, directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel, uncovers the final two years in the life of one of the world’s most famous and most loved women.
Check out the story: DIANA takes audiences into the private realm of one of the world’s most iconic and inescapably public women — the Princess of Wales, Diana (two-time Oscar® nominee NAOMI WATTS) — in the last two years of her meteoric life. On the occasion of the 16th anniversary of her sudden death, acclaimed director Oliver Hirschbiegel (the Oscar®-nominated Downfall) explores Diana’s final rite of passage: a secret love affair with Pakistani heart surgeon Dr. Hasnat Khan (NAVEEN ANDREWS, “Lost,” The English Patient), the human complications of which reveal the Princess’s climactic days in a compelling new light.
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.
