Koi Mil Gaya not the first Bollywood movie to deal with extra-terrestrials:

Koi Mil Gaya is about a mischievous, mentally-challenged teen whose life is transformed after an encounter with an alien (Jaadoo). James Colmer of Bimmini Special FX, Australia, designed the alien in eight months. The film is being promoted as “India’s first science fiction film and, perhaps, the world’s first science fiction musical”.

Way back in 1967, Bollywood actor N.A. Ansari had produced and directed Wahan Ke Log, which dealt with extra-terrestrials. The movie starring Pradeep Kumar, Tanuja, Bela Bose and Johnny Walker, had advertised itself with the blurb: “The strange visitors from Mars are on the way.”

The same year, Dara Singh, Ratna and Helen starred in Trip to Moon, with music composed by Usha Khanna. Though these were C-grade films, they were still humble attempts at sci-fi, Bollywood style.
