Hi all,
   I am not able to get the MAC address if the IP address is not in the same class.
  Can you please tell me the Nmap Option which finds the MAC for any IP address.

There is none. As soon as a packet passes a router the only MAC you're 
gonna see is the one of the router. ARP-packets simply cannot be routed.
