Kindly find below photographs of Schisandra (Schizandra) grandiflora shot in Himachal Pradesh.
This genus, falling under family Schisandraceae, has been earlier dealt under family Magnoliaceae.
A straggler bearing very beautiful flowers and fruits.... enjoy..

Thanks, ..., for the wonderful pictures.
I think then Michelia champaca in the heading is wrong.
Yes, there is a mistake. The name in the title should have been Schisandra grandiflora.
Beautiful addition, Sir. Where was it growing ?
Some where in Himachal Pradesh. … can tell us the exact place.

Where was this growing?

Any Vitaceae member ?
Did not find any match for Vitaceae
Actually, leaves are not matching to any of Vitaceae.
It reminds me of Sapium insigne, but it's just a wild guess as I can't see if this is a tree or a shrub.
It is not Sapium insigne.

Please compare with S.grandiflora in eFI.
You hit the bull's eye ! Thank you.

Sharing some pictures for identification shot at Nagarkoy Nepal on 13 August 2016 at 7000 ft.
May be a member of Phyllanthaceae, much more looking like Antidesma; images are not so descriptive.
Please check Gomphia species also,
Schisandra grandiflora (Wall.) Hook. f. & Thomson ??

Yes, may be as it appears closer to images at Schisandra grandiflora
