Chennai: Actor Vishnu Manchu has pierced his ears for the yet-untitled Telugu remake of Tamil actioner "Arima Nambi".
"Director Deva Katta requested Vishnu to get his ears pierced for the role and he did it without even asking a question," read a statement.
Vishnu will take classes in freestyle martial arts for the film.
"I'm already trained in Wushu (a traditional Chinese martial art), but I'm keen on learning freestyle martial arts for this film. I may go abroad to take classes or even bring someone to Hyderabad to teach me. I'll decide soon," Vishnu had told reporters.
The rest of the cast will be finalised soon.
