This can be a Barleria sp.
What about Barleria prionitis
Barleria cristata may also be considered
This may not be Barleria at all. Certainly not B. prionitis, nor B. cristata, at least.
… flower shape and texture reminds of Strobilanthes.
The search is on
…i think this is Barleria prionitis
…, please have a look at this link for B. prionitis flowers. They are completely different from the posted ones. And the plant is spiny in B. prionitis, with prominent, white spines.

nothing great in this ‘find’ because this is a surprise in my home garden. Sorry, hence no information about natural habitat and distribution.
