Monday, 16 February, 2015, 02:32

Dhanush's KV Anand directed Anegan has taken a very good opening in Chennai city and suburbs. The film has grossed an impressive Rs 1.30 Cr in opening weekend, which is very good for a Dhanush film.Anegan is the number one at the CBO and is a winner as content has been liked and film carries positive reports. There was also stiff competition from Ajith's Yennai Arindhaal in its second week and in the second place as film is holding on well in Chennai city.Both Anegan and Yennai Arindhaal shared multiplex big screens, which ate into the overall box-office collections of both films during the weekend.In the third place is NTR's Temper, which took a very good opening, clocking nearly Rs 25 lakhs gross from TN mainly Chennai and Chengalpet.Shankar's I continue to be steady especially during weekends, but newer releases has eaten badly into its overall collections. The Vikram starrer is at number four.And in the fifth place is Dhanush's Hindi film Shamitabh, which is an all India failure but is doing decent business in the hero's hometown.
