my thoughts: ... assuming it to be the typical Canna indica.
An irony? Though indica, which would mean "of or from India", the plant is known to be native of tropical region of western hemisphere, widely cultivated / naturalised in tropical regions of eastern hemisphere.
 
Sumit ji, you may have found some of these plants "growing unattended" thus wild, however in the vicinity of inhabited area.
Please wait for comments.
 
Regards.

Yes Garg ji, you are right. It is C. indica.

Hello all
Canna can be seen growing luxuriantly in small ponds and places where
water has logged and along nallas (common along railway tracks,
especially observed in Mumbai). it is not merely a garden plant, but
can be commonly found as an escape.
