Saeed is best known for his role in “Jawani Phir Nahi Ani”, for which he won the ARY for Best Actor.
Princess Diana dated Dr. Khan before her relationship with Dodi Fayed. While Khan loved Diana, he did not like the media attention that went along with dating her. Diana and Fayed died in a Paris car crash in 1997.
In the upcoming season 5 of “The Crown”, Diana will be played by Elizabeth Debicki and Fayed by Khalid Abdalla.
