    My mom is talking about a friend coming to visit from India. She had mentioned a friend's son who's going to move to India. I say:

    Which friend? Same friend whose son is moving to India?

    VS

    Which friend? Same friend who has a son that's moving to India?

    Are both the same?

    Both versions need 'The' before 'same', except in casual conversation.

    In addition to adding "the", I would use "... who has a son who's​ moving to India?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    This would be easier on the ear to me:
