Pankaj said, "It has been almost 2 years I haven't taken any leave from work for a longer period. My wife Mridula use to watch Outlanders and that is how she has seen Scotland and always wanted to visit Scotland in real life after having seen the series. Being in Mumbai or anywhere in India, I am always busy with some project or another. This was a much-needed vacation for all of us, even my daughter wanted to see Scotland since she is a fan of Sherlock Holmes. So unanimously it was decided to go to Scotland on vacation. This would be the first time my wife and daughter will be visiting Scotland and I'm looking forward to going there."
