Post his NSD days the actor has been and is still a part of a lot of theatre activities, which makes him earn a lot of accolades from people in and out of the industry. Tushar plays a character called "Mummy" which stands out in most of the scenes in the trailer of the film. His chemistry with Varun Sharma's character "Sexa" also seems to be palpable in the trailer. While Varun Sharma plays the more outspoken character, Tushar plays a much more subtle and shy character in the film.

Tushar Pandey shares an interesting story as to how he got the role. "I had tested for this role long back and had forgotten about it. A few months later, I was in Sikkim working on a theatre project. I got a call from the team asking me to come down for a final look test. I was in the middle of work but the test had to be done in a day's time- since we have to play two different age groups. Luckily, I managed to sort a day off, rode for 5 hours to the airport, look a connecting flight via Guwahati. Reached Mumbai, went straight for the test. The same night, I repeated the journey to get back to Sikkim to finish the project. Nitesh Tiwari sir has created Mummy as such a wholesome character which shares both vulnerability and confidence to take on any challenge. This is all that I can reveal at the moment.”

Nitesh Tiwari had mentioned in an interview "All the guys in the film are based on guys I’ve lived with during my four years, mummy is based on one of my juniors".
