Thunbergia climber seen in a cultivated garden in Mumbai.
Is it T.laurifolia or T. grandiflora?
How to distinguish the two?

In my view  yours is  Thunbergia laurifolia .

Thunbergia laurifolia is similar to Thunbergia grandiflora

except that  leaves are elliptical 

Thunbergia grandiflora is similar to Thunbergia laurifolia

But  leaves are heart-shaped.
