We study Einstein's field equations to describe static spherically symmetric relativistic compact objects with anisotropic matter distribution, and generate two classes of exact solutions by choosing a generalized form for one of the gravitational potentials and a particular form for the measure of anisotropy. This is achieved by transforming the Einstein's field equation to a hypergeometric equation. The generated models generalize the isotropic models of Durgapal-Bannerji, Tikekar and Vaidya-Tikekar. The physical viability of the model is examined and compared with observational results of strange star candidates.
