The upcoming film Ra-One is not just a science fiction, but also has a message for Indian males who habitually use expletives targeted at women to express anger or strong feelings, says Shah Rukh Khan.

"Nobody can deny the fact that in India expletives targeted at women are freely used by men during conversation or in anger, without realising that it is our own mother and sisters who have raised us," Shah Rukh said in Bhopal.

The SRK was in Bhopal for the promotion of Ra-One, which will hit the cinema halls during Diwali.

He said that he looked upon the tendency to use woman-centric expletives as a real social problem,

The Bollywood actor also said that by making Ra-One, he has tried to prove that India too is capable of producing technologically superior movies. At the same time, he said, more efforts should be made to bring advance technology to Indian films.

Shah Rukh arrived nearly four-five hours behind the schedule because of some technical snag in his private plane at Jaipur. However, a large number of fans waited patiently to have a glimpse of the star.

Later, Shah Rukh also jived to the tune of Chaiyya-Chaiyya and Chhamakchallo.
