Chennai Box Office (April 28 - May 1)

Wednesday, 3 May, 2006, 01:44

The 4-day May-Day long weekend saw an interesting battle between two Telugu guys- Ramgopal Varma's Hindi film Darna Zaroori Hai and Puri Jaganath's Pokiri at the Chennai box-office.

But it is Varma's taut thriller Darna Zaroori Hai that is at the first place as it was screened at two huge screens (Sathyam & Ega). Mahesh Babu's mass masala action entertainer Pokiri also took an awesome opening (98.5) in a single screen (Jayaprada) and is at second place.

Tiruttu payale continues to have a steady run and is at third place while Basic Instinct-2 is at fourth position. And at fifth place Tirupati hangs on precariously.
