1 very high res. image.

Going by the keys furnished by you and specimens from India in GBIF, I think your species looks to be Gynura bicolor as per GBIF– specimen 1
Looks different from GBIF specimens of  G.auriculata and G. nepalensis

ASTERACEAE Fortnight Part-I – Klenia Grandiflora (NSJ-01:04:05:13) : 5 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (2)
Sharing – Klenia Grandiflora (Vander roti in Marathi)

Does not match with images at Kleinia grandiflora (wallich ex DC.) N.Rani
May be some Gynuraspecies

Matches with flower image of G. bicolor in efi page but I guess it needs to be revisited.

Flowers match with images of Gynura bicolor at Useful tropical Plants and Herbs from distant Lands, although leaves are not posted and therefore verified.
