Appears to be some Grewia species. Without flowers difficult to comment on the species.

Deare Raghuji,
Precisely this shrub is Grewia hirsuta, I could taste the Honey-sweet of these fruits when we were in field works; common in dry deciduous forests.
First I hesitated to eat this fruit owing to its hirsuite nature, but it is really good.
 
Local Tamil name: Thaen kallai [seeds of honey]
