'Mangal' rises, 'Anniyan' drops at Chennai box-office this week

Finally after eight weeks at Sify's Chennai box-office, Shankar's "Anniyan" has been pushed down by Aamir Khan's "Mangal Pandey" which has emerged at the first position with a whopping Rs 24, 28,000 net share from three screens during the long four day weekend.

At number two is Mahesh Babu's "Athadu" which netted Rs 10.5 Lakhs from three screens. "Anniyan" is at number three and "Fantastic Four is at fourth position. "Dass" is at number five. Sadly the two Tamil releases of this week failed to make it to the top five
