Hello everyone, I'm dying to know what this plant is called, it must be an indian plant, I took a screenshot of that show, Indian Summers. It appears several times on the show but never close enough that it shows it's distinctive features, on top of that the quality of the stills is poor, I'm sorry about that. I hope someone can still help me. They are big pink flowers, in clusters.
Thank you very much.

It looks like Mussaenda.
The flowers are actually tiny and yellow.

While the pink is enlarged calyx lobes.
