We all flock to the theater to watch a new Marvel or DC film and go all gaga over them. But we’ve been ignoring the worth that Indian superheroes hold and their potential for a great film or franchise. 

Here we look at five such superheroes that deserve their very own films:

 

Doga

Probably one of the most famous Indian comic superhero, Doga, is a martial art expert, a perfect marksman and an absolute bad-ass. Raised by gangster Halkan Singh, Doga was treated like a dog and hence learnt to communicate with canines. Doga survives to take revenge on Halkan Singh and his gang and fights anything evil in his way. 

Indian filmmaker Anurag Kahsyap was planning to produce a Doga film with Kunal Kapoor starring in it, but unfortunately, he dropped his plans for the film.
