Dear Sir,
 
This is Chonemorpha grandiflora (Roth) M R Almeida & S M Almeida {Syn. Chonemorpha fragrans (Moon) Alston} belongs to Apocynaceae.  But as you think it is not a shrub, it is a climbing shrub.
 
Thanks

Dear Santhosh
Many many thanks for id, you are right, it is a climbing shrub. Actually i was with a team studying for Periyar model of Eco-tourism, as you know with a team with different task you are always in hurry. Just while walking i saw this plant with large flowers & thought it is a shrub, now i rechecked the photographs, the plant is climbing on a large shrub.
thanks again.
Nayan
