Rajesh Khanna`s family to see his last film first

Mumbai: Late superstar Rajesh Khanna`s last film ‘Riyasat’ will first be shown to the actor`s family members, before being screened for the press, says director Ashok Tyagi.

"I am going to show Kakaji`s (Rajesh Khanna`s) last film to his family members first. It`s worth a watch and I am sure they will love the film. I`m planning to show his last film to his family members including Dimple Kapadia, Akshay Kumar, Twinkle Khanna and Rinki Khanna," Tyagi told IANS.

The film is in its post-production stage as of now, and Rajesh Khanna features in a prominent role in it.

"I will send Kakaji`s family members an official invitation for an exclusive trial show of his last film. I also want the press to watch the film before it hits the theatres. I am quite confident about this film," said Tyagi, who has decided to release the movie Dec 28, a day before the actor`s 70th birth anniversary.

Rajesh Khanna died in July after prolonged illness and a liver infection, and he had wrapped up most of the shooting for ‘Riyasat’.

Ashok says the promotions of the film will start from December itself.

"I don`t want to hurry up just to meet the deadline. I am going to do my best. Since its Kakaji`s last film, I don`t want to keep any stone unturned and want to make this film a memorable one," he said.

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