The naughty birdie that lures people to reveal confidential information about their lives and professional ventures has now been gagged. Celebrities in Hollywood and Bollywood have been banned from revealing information on their upcoming and ongoing projects.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, actors have new clauses in their contracts that prevent them from using social media sites. A clause from Disney says that the actor should not make information available "via 'interactive media such as Facebook, Twitter, or any other interactive social network or personal blog.'" Cameron Diaz and Mike Myers are also believed to have been banned from revealing confidential information related to ongoing projects.

The ban isn't just confined to Hollywood. B-town celebs are not getting spared either. Recently, actor Emraan Hashmi upset the director of one of his biggest forthcoming releases Tum Mile by revealing his look in the film much ahead of the planned strategy. According to the detailed marketing strategy which had been planned for the film, some exclusive pictures were to be revealed only at the time of the music release of the film. However, the actor posted these exclusive pictures on the social networking web site Twitter, which has apparently resulted in a tiff between the two. Starring Emraan Hashmi and Soha Ali Khan, the movie will hit theatres on November 13.
Gul Panag, who is also very active on Twitter, has been banned from revealing any information related to her upcoming film with Prakash Jha on the site. "Ok now I am getting banned from tweeting!! Enter spy tweet mode!" reads her recent tweet.
So much for democracy, in the country!
