My wife Mridula used to watch the show, Outlanders and that is how she got obsessed with visiting the country. This is 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, we decided on the location. I’ve been to several European countries for work but this is the first time we are going as a family.”
A source close to him reveals, “Pankaj will begin shooting the first schedule of Kabir Khan’s film ’83 very soon. He is planning a vacation to Scotland with his family before he commences the shoot for the film in London, UK.
