With the release of sci-fi films like 'Ra.One', superstar Shah Rukh Khan feels that Indian cinema would have its own superhero, pushing imported 'batmans' and Harry Potters to the back seat.

"This film is one of its kinds and I am saying this from my 20 years of experience in Indian cinema. We all in the entertainment industry do look at it as something that will take Indian films forward not that I have made it and not because all of us are part of it. Its important that Indian films must go forward why get into things like from where it has been copied...and that its batman type and all," Shah Rukh told reporters here last night.

"We all are going to have Indian superheroes and not only me there are going to be other actors who are going to make this genre possible. In the entire world its the only country in the world that has superhero films is America..why it should be so. We are the largest Indian film producing nation in the world why should we not have superhero...whether it is Drona, Krrish or my film...or ten more such films that will come," he said.

Ra.One, is a superhero film, has been directed by Anubhav Sinha and produced under the banner of Khan's Red Chillies Entertainment.

"With this film we have taken the technology forward and we should be proud of it. Till how much time we will have Harry Potter type movies. I think we need to make Harry Potter, Batman and Superman here. I don't know the fate of the film...how many people will like it. But this is genuinely this is a very special film," Shah Rukh said.

The movie will see Shah Rukh playing 'G.One' and Arjun Rampal as 'Ra.One'.

"All superhero films are same like there is a superhero, there is a super villain and then he dies. And this Dusshera you will see the mythological Raavan getting killed in 3D. I am sure you will like it. Yes the film looks like all the movies in this world. But yet I would say it is a unique film and I can assure you this," Khan said.

The movie also stars Kareena Kapoor, Shahana Goswami, Dilip Tahil and Chinese-American actor Tom Wu. 'Ra.One' releases on October 26.
