"He wants to ring in the New Year with some exciting work," a source close to the actor said.

"One of the reasons Vishnu is working right from the start of the year is because he wants to complete the film as quickly as possible," he said.

Vishnu specially underwent training in freestyle martial arts for his role in the film.

Also starring Pranitha Subash, the remake is being directed by Deva Katta.

In 2014, Vishnu experimented with films such as 'Rowdy' and 'Anukshanam'.
