Could Bollywood do a good one? Did they already do one, i just don't know about it.

Fyodor Bondarchuk did a fairly big budget and reasonably good science fiction action epic:

What would you like to see adapted if they ever go down that road?

Singing or no singing?

How many songs?
1. It wouldn't be Bollywood if there were no songs.
2. They have started doing some sci-fi, but mostly Earth bound...either aliens, robots, or superheroes... to varying degrees of success.

In my experience sci-fi doesn't seem to be as a popular box office draw as it is in the US. So, I doubt they would do a space opera anytime soon.
Any good ones that have aliens?
GOOD? I don't know if I would go that far... cheesy, melodramatic, yes.

Koi... Mil Gaya, a sort of first encounter story and then its sequel Krrish. It's a super hero sci fi movie--better visually than the first. But I don't remember much of it.

Hrithik Roshan is the star of both. He is a really good dancer and actor... better dance than actor.

That's all that I can think of that have aliens. Like I said, sci fi is not popular in the way that it is in the west. It's just not a genre that has sparked excitement. Maybe the audience that wants it is small and western films are enough. Don't know. But, there is very very very little native sci fi.
