Post his portrayal of a character in Shoojit Sircar’s Pink (2016) which starred Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu as the lead protagonist, Tushar Pandey has finally arrived with his upcoming friendship drama called ‘Hum Chaar’ produced by Rajshri Productions.

Pandey shedding some light on his experience of working with such a renowned production like Rajshri and about his ‘Hum Chaar’ co-stars Anshuman Malhotra, Prit Kamani and Simran Sharma. He said, “It was a great experience as we began our preparation 45 days before the shoot. I found three new friends and never felt like we are actually doing some work. Because of our bond on the sets, we didn’t even notice about the completion of the entire film’s shooting.”

A rare known fact about Pandey is that he did a very small part in Rakesh Omprakash Mehra and Aamir Khan’s ‘Rang De Basanti’ (2006) as his very first acting gig. Tushar remembering the story behind the camera said, “I did it just for fun. I didn’t know that it would become so popular. People still send me messages and asks me that ‘Is it me or someone else?’.”

Sharing his process of working in films and theater, he added, “Due to theatre, I got a direction to approach a skill of acting. As an actor I feel, the process of acting is same but medium changes the treatment of it. As an actor, it’s our responsibility, to be honest towards our character.”

Pandey’s next venture is Chhichhore where he would be seen playing a parallel lead alongside Sushant Singh Rajput and Shraddha Kapoor. Talking about the development stage of the film, the actor quotes, “Yes, it’s a very big project for me. The shoot is in the process and I can’t reveal much about it. Right now, my full energy is for Hum Chaar because this is the film which has given me that position.”

‘Hum Chaar’ directed by Abhishek Dixit is all set to entertain the audiences and hit the screens on 15th February.
