Fixing on mig29 k will be difficult considering the fact that fixing a single brahmos on the heavier sukhoi required structural modification and strengthening of the sukhoi's undercarriage.

Forget about three brahmos missiles on sukhoi. Not gonna happen.

But if the brahmos has land attack capability as claimed then it can be used to target surface targets like terrorist camps , hardened bunkers, ammunition depots, air bases etc .with sukhoi having combat radius of 1500 km and brahmos having range of nearly 300 km the option of striking nearly 1800 km inside enemy territory at high speed is there . Currently 42 sukhoi have been modified for bhramos .
