I guess these are flower-buds, and they resemble that of Brugmansia. Since this is from wild, this could be some other member of solanaceae. I may be wrong though.

I also feel it is Brugmansia
Yes, by seeing the oblique leaf base I could say this is a Solanaceae member.
Dear .., have you noticed the flowers by now? or any other photo of this plant available?
