Keira: Film is not based on Diana


Keira Knightley has rejected claims that her new film 'The Duchess' tries too hard to make parallels with the life of Princess Diana.

The film is based on the biography of Georgiana Duchess of Devonshire, an 18th-century socialite who was born Georgiana Spencer and was an ancestor of Diana Spencer.

Lizo Mzimba asked her about the claims.
