She was known as the people's princess. Now, 16 years to the day after her fatal car crash, people are still fascinated by pncess diana. That fascination is only growing, as the royal family finds itself back in the spotlight, with a new generation. Jeffrey kofman is in london. Reporter: Has it really been 16 years? Those too young to remember and those who don't want to forget, the diana myth marches on. Now, in the movie. In death, diana has become an industry. The new film called simply "diana" is about the last two years of her life. It's still possible you might be queen one day. I want to help people. Reporter: And her last love, including a pakistani heart surgeon. Will you pop around the corner with me. I'm trying to find a way for us to be together. Diana. Reporter: That surgeon, dr. Hasnat khan, has denounced the film, saying it's just gossip. He had nothing to do with its making and says he will not be seeing it. If you choose not to get involved and criticize after the film has been made, inevitably, people ask why you've chosen to break your dignified silence now, since the effect is to sell more tickets and give the film free publicity. Reporter: It was 16 years ago today that diana was killed in a car crash in paris, while trying to escape the paparazzi. Another lover, egyptian military, dodi fayed, was at her side. The larger-than-life princess has lived on in myth. Princess diana's death under scrutiny again. Reporter: Never really leaving the headlines. Now, her daughter-in-law, kate, has taken up the mantle. Giving birth to a future king just weeks ago. We'll be out for a bit longer. Reporter: Diana never lived to see her grandson born. Diana made her great contribution to royal upbringing of babies, as a mother. So, it's intriguing to wonder whether she'd have been a great granny, as well. I think she would have been right on the cutting edge, trying to introduce new ideas. She saw that as her role in the royal family. Reporter: Now, what else endears around diana are the conspiracy theories. The latest one this month says she didn't die in a car accident. It was british special forces that killed her. The evidence nothing more than hearsay. But the detectives of scotland yard have been asked to review that file one more time. It's so true. I remember where I was when i found out she died. Our jfk moment. Jeffrey, thank you.
