Legendary actor Rajesh Khanna’s last film Riyasat was supposed to hit the screens on Friday, a day before the 70th birth anniversary of the late star. But the film’s director, Ashok Tyagi, says the release stands postponed as the team couldn’t find any distributor for the film.

The film is now expected to release in March 2013.

“This is Kakaji’s (Rajesh Khanna) last film, but every distributor is looking at it as a business. He was a superstar and nobody is bothered about his last film,” rued Tyagi, adding, “Everybody looks at this film with a business perspective. I was quite sentimental about releasing this film on his birth anniversary.” But he is still positive. “I am sure the film will find its own way,” he said. Asked if he took the support of Rajesh Khanna’s family, Tyagi said, “If the family wants to take an initiative, then they are most welcome. But I personally haven’t asked for any help.”
