It may be Elaeagnus indica, if the leaves are silvery-white beneath.

It look like Elaeagnus conferta Roxb. [Syn. E. latifolia auct. (non Linn.)].
A large, branched, usually scandent shrub, often running over trees.
Leaves variable, broadly elliptiv or elliptic-lanceolate, obtuse or
acuminate apex, upper surface pale green, clothed with small whitish
seals. lower surface silvery white. Flowers usually many in cluster.
Perianth covered with silvery scales. fruit nearly 2 cm long. edible.

Villagers make pickle of the fruits...

can be seen in Mahableshwar, Matheran, Khandala, Nasik, Ahmednagar etc
in Maharashtra..

A reply:
"It may not be Elaeagnus conferta.  Coul be Elaeagnus indica.For E.c. leaves are longer (fruits are edible, size vary from 1.5-2 cm long, taste like tamarind)

I agree with Vijay. This is Elaeagnus indica of Elaeagnaceae family. 

Dear Prasanna,

Would you please tell me what was the color under the leaves

Regards,
Giby
