Dear Dinesh,
I presume this to be a Litsaea sp. Family Lauraceae. I had seen a
similar species (could be the same one) in the wild recently. I will
send the photograph later. It was quite common and the trees were full
of fruits.
Regards,
Sandhya

Yes, it does look like Litsea floribunda, popularly known as 'Nara mamidi' in Telugu. It is a Red Listed medicinal plant.

Dear Sandhya, 

Would you please let me know the altitude at which you have photographed this plant. At lease place name, I shall get the altitude. 
I think it is on the way to the dam site! Am I correct? 

It is most probably Litsea floribunda to me. 




Regards,
Giby

It is L. floribunda. The leaf venation is typical. In L. wightiana, the leaf venation is more different.

Dear Giby,
I think the altitude is roughly between 900 and 1000m. Hope this will suffice. I took the photographs since it was full of fruits but did not closely observe the floral features. Next time I will.
Regards,
Sandhya
