Dinesh ji,
I couldn't find any specific Tamil name for Artabotrys zeylanicus may be due to rare occurrence of the species in the State.
I however noticed that sometimes the Tamil name of A. hexapetalus, 'Manoranjitham' (மனோரஞ்சிதம்), is also applied to A. zeylanicus (either by error or) possibly because of its similarity with the former species.

Thanks very very much Vijayasankar ji for your thoughts.
I too found mention of மனோரஞ்சிதம் manoranjitham at flickr.

I would go with this name especially because the name is shared even in Malayalam and Telugu languages.
References: Kerala Plants and Lalithamba ji's response to my query.

Thanks once again.
Regards.
Dinesh
