Actress, model, and entrepreneur Gul Panag is known for her love of bikes and cars. She enjoys exploring the outdoors, and her social media profiles are filled with videos and images related to her adventures. She is likely the only actress from Bollywood who owns a Mahindra Scorpio Getaway pickup. She has modified it for off-road use and has also added a rooftop tent, which she uses on her road trips. Recently, the actress shared a set of images and videos on Instagram, where she can be seen with her son enjoying the outdoors. For this experience, Gul Panag chose to use a Mahindra Scorpio N, which has been equipped with a rooftop tent.

Gul Panag only shared the images on her Instagram profile. The actress took her son on this adventurous trip and wrote, “Every day is a new experience in the outdoors, and this is Nihal’s favorite part: camping. Where I come from, this is actually glamping, but more on that later. We first took Nihal camping two years ago when he was 3. I was apprehensive about whether he would enjoy it. Given that a significant part of his parents’ lives revolves around the outdoors and adventure, it would have been a setback if he didn’t enjoy those activities. Luckily for us, he took to it like a fish to water!
Now, given a choice for a weekend break, he will always choose camping. He sometimes even asks to go camping in the middle of a school week! This time, we tried a new tent from my friends @nomadadventuresoverland, and we loved it. It’s much easier to set up than my older Iron Man tent (which is faster than a conventional tent that @sherbir and I have grown up pitching—tired, hungry, and often in pouring rain). And it’s equally quick to pack up.
Special thanks to our buddies @bimbra4x4 and @taranbimbra for installing it, and a big shout-out to my favorites at @mahindraadventure for organizing this @mahindra.scorpio.official. We had an amazing weekend amidst the pine trees with clean air, under the stars—thanks to you all.”
The Mahindra Scorpio N seen in the pictures is a top-end diesel automatic 4×4 SUV. This is likely the first time we have seen a Scorpio N with a rooftop tent. The tent is mounted on a platform placed on the roof of the SUV. It looks like the stock roof rails were removed for this custom setup. The tent appears very compact and does not look odd when completely folded. If a person is going on such trips alone, they don’t have to rely on others to set up the tent. The same can be seen in the video as well.
In the pictures, the actress and her son can be seen enjoying the overall experience while sitting in the tent. Other than the tent, we don’t see any other modifications on this SUV. We are not sure whether the Mahindra Scorpio N seen here belongs to the actress or if she simply used it for the trip. The Mahindra Scorpio N is available with both petrol and diesel engine options. It offers a 2.0-liter mStallion turbocharged petrol engine and a 2.2-liter mHawk turbocharged diesel engine. Both these engine options are available with manual and automatic transmission. Only the diesel engine option is offered with the 4×4 feature. It is the only SUV in this segment to offer this feature.
