Nope. India's air force is more French than Russian nowadays anyway. They also have plans for their own 5th gen fighter.

Furthermore, India's desire to be (at least nominally) neutral would not really fit well into becoming dependent on the US for military, which they would be if they accepted F-35s and wanted to use the F-35s to their full potential.
