Mumbai, Sep 2 (IANS) Veteran actor Rajesh Khanna's last film "Riyasat" has got a U/A certificate from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). The delayed film is now likely to release around the late superstar's 71st birth anniversary Dec 29.

The film was supposed to come out on Rajesh Khanna's birth anniversary in 2012 but it was then pushed to his death anniversary July 18 this year. However, it did not manage a release even then. But everything is in place now, says director Ashok Tyagi.

"Rajesh Khanna represents life. Therefore, it was inappropriate to release his film on his death anniversary. The film is now absolutely ready for release with a U/A censor certificate," Tyagi told IANS.

"We have issued pages in the trade magazines requesting the entire industry to support us in bringing this film to the audience," he added.

"Riyasat" also features Gauri Kulkarni, Aryan Vaid, Aryeman Ramsay and Raza Murad.

Tyagi feels it will be ideal to release the film Dec 27, two days before the actor's 71st birth anniversary.

Rajesh Khanna, the first superstar of Hindi films, died after a prolonged illness in 2012. He is known for hits like "Aradhana", "Kati Patang", "Anand", "Amar Prem", "Do Raaste" and "Aan Milo Sajna" among others.
