The movie Diana caused quite a stir ever since it was announced, with the late princess’ ex-beau cardiologist Hasnat Khan being the main target. Last month, Princess Diana’s close friend Jemima Khan revealed some hidden secrets about Diana’s relationship with Khan. However, Khan chose to remain silent over media’s growing curiosity.
But now after the release of the film, the 54-year-old doctor has finally faced the critics and slammed it. Khan told The Sun that even though he hasn’t seen the film, he believes, “it’s based on a superficial idea and is a betrayal” of facts, according to nydailynews.com. For the longest time, Khan was tight-lipped but “when it’s in your face, it’s hard”.
“I can see a lot of humour in a lot of bad things, but in this one, I can’t,” he said. “I haven’t seen the film and I haven’t met anyone who has seen it. But I can tell you for sure that it’s based on a superficial idea. I have kept things very discreet, but now this film is trying to open things up again.”
Khan has never discussed any details of their relationship publicly and feels that the movie is now making things difficult. “The past few weeks have been tough,” he told the Daily Mail. “I know Diana would be saying, ‘Stay focused and keep getting on with your life … Be happy’.”
Khan has also rejected the claim that his family refused to get them married because Diana was a non-Muslim. Divorced in 2008, Khan is now single and practices medicine in England.
