Bollywood actress Gul Panag, an avid user of the microblogging website Twitter, is of the opinion that celebrities should be cautious while using such social interfaces.
The actress who is blogging live for Twitter from the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week which kicked off here today, said that actors should avoid unwittingly revealing secret details about their films.
"It's absolutely correct that celebrities should not be allowed to talk about their films on Twitter. I completely relate to it. I remember getting posts after I wrote ,'I've just finished a film' with people asking me 'Which film, with who'. It's basic common sense," Panag told PTI.
The former beauty queen who was one of the first in Bollywood to get hooked to the website feels that celebrities should be careful while talking about their professional life and adhere to their director's will.
"Prematurely they shouldn't talk about their films and it's justified. Of course there will be a time when they would like to talk about it. In fact a lot of celebrity accounts are set up for promotion," she added.
The actress who is the 'Twitter Face' of WLIFW said that amid the hectic activity she wished for nothing else but leisure to sit and tweet in peace.
"It's great to do something you enjoy so much. I am proud to be associated with the fashion week as it brings fashion closer to people. I just want to watch the shows, sit in a corner and tweet," said the actress who was given a makeover by Fashion Week's official make-up artist Ambika Pillai.
The 30-year-old actress who won over critics and audiences alike with films like like 'Dor' and 'Manorama Six Feet Under' is also excited about her upcoming film, Ram Gopal Verma's 'Rann which also stars Amitabh Bacchan, Riteish Deshmukh and Manisha Koirala in the lead.
"Rann is a movie that shows the nexus between the politicians, media and the industry. I think it will be a path-breaking film. There is also a film called 'Factful' which is the story of a girl Nandini who is very aggressive and fiery," Panag said about her future projects.
The actress was also upbeat about the opening shows by designers Wendell Rodericks and Narendra Kumar.
"They were the opening shows so there was a lot of drama and I think nobody went disappointed," said Panag.
