Please identify these two flowers. The first photo is from the potted plants in my balcony and the second one was shot on the way to Kalsubai.

The first one looks like flowers of Sitaphal or Ramphal. Waiting for more answers.

Yes, the first one looks like Annona sp. to me also, and the second one may be Nicandra physalodes (Solanaceae).

Potted plant may be Cananga kirkii (Anonaceae) and the other is Nicandra physalodes.
