Yes you can draw out a pre nuptial agreement signed by both of you. Please get it written in black and white and via a good lawyer/advocate.

Pre-nuptial agreements are not legally enforceable in India. You may go for it for a better understanding on financial aspects.

 

However alternatively you can make a will declaring the division of your property/assets, that will be more legal and valid than Prenuptial.

Your wife needs to take the prenuptial agreement sensibly or else there are chances of misunderstandings creeping before marriage !
