The Indians keep throwing up useless underfunded missions that fail before they get there, for no other reason than National Prestige. I bet they’d be interested.

They do it for the national prestige of making the rockets that take them to space and not so much the idea American or foreign rockets took Indian tourists to space.

Falcon Heavy, 53 metric tons to LEO.
The scaled down Soyuz the Russians planned to use for their cancelled lunar flyby masses just 6 tons. That leaves quite a bit for the trans-stages that would be needed for trans-lunar injection and return, and for a small lander.

I think this is doable but the article probably understates the development effort needed on the specialized hardware, like the lander and the trans-stages.

Falcon Heavy has just half the LEO payload of the Saturn V, but the modified Soyuz or SpaceX's own Dragon are much lighter than Apollo and a new lander could be much lighter than the original LM.
