Film director Kunal Kohli, currently shooting for his film Break Ke Baad in Mauritius, has forbidden lead actors Deepika Padukone and Imran Khan from talking about the film on social networking sites on the internet.

Kohli said: "I've only asked Deepika and Imran to desist from tweeting for three weeks until Imran's new film I Hate Luv Storys is released. I don't want any overlapping in the public's subconscious about the two films. Once Imran's other film is out, he and Deepika are free to tweet to their heart's content."

This is the second instance when actors have been prohibited from tweeting about a film. In the past, Sajid Nadiadwala had to restrain Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra from talking about the film Anjaana Anjaani on the net.

The director's restrictions have, apparently, not been taken well by Imran who was heard grumbling loudly about the curtailment of the freedom of expression.

Justifying his stand, Kohli determinedly said: "I really don't approve of stars giving out information on micro-blogging sites, but I don't think we should stop them. What I can do is to decide when the right time to tweet is."
