Nice picture. This could be of Pavonia zeylanica.

I think it is Pavonia odorata

In Pavonia zeylanica the leaves are deeply lobed.

Thanks Giby, you must be right. I also had doubt, but to me the mericarps appear to be winged (not very clear though). The leaves are said to be (FoC) variable....upper shallowly lobed, lower leaves (which is not covered in the pictures) deeply lobed. So, if Ranjini ji can tell us whether the fruits winged (P. z.) or not (P. o.), the id can be resolved.
