The latter, though (1) I do not know the exact cultural genealogy (i.e., the event or events that made it popular may not have involved a Russian: e.g., I do not think Nikita Sergeyevich Krushchev is directly responsible for the feminine Indian name) and, (2) in particular, I do not think that use as feminine started in India: for example, La Femme Nikita, I believe, has no Indian antecedents, and, it is very likely that when Indian parents used the name, it was already feminine in the source culture.
