As we all know that today is Shweta Tiwari’s birthday and we bring you her best qualities that sets her apart and make her the best television celebrity we have ever seen.
Shweta Tiwari surprised everyone with her fitness last year when she competed with youngsters in Khatron Ke Khiladi 11. Be it her stamina or her hot looks, Shweta continues to be one of the most well-maintained and glamorous television actresses in India. As she turns a year older today, here are some takeaways from her inspiring journey.
Early life I the industry
She initially started as a glamour diva and now is more recognized for her acting skills and successfully parenting 2 kids single handedly.
Shweta Tiwari emerged as a strong woman despite two failed marriages
Her smiling face never revealed the battles she fought and the struggles in her personal life that she went through. After marrying Raja Chaudhary, she dived into married life and became a mother of a young girl Palak Tiwari who has now grown into a beautiful aspiring actress. But things did not work out with Raja and Shweta divorced him and continued to raise her daughter on her own.
Back in those days, divorce was not as common as it is today, Shweta had a hard time ignoring the taunts of society and keeping her daughter safe from such negativity.
Her second marriage left Shweta devastated
When she married Raja, Shweta was only 19 years old. But post-divorce from him and well into her late twenties, the actress fell in love with another actor Abhinav Kohli who accepted her with Palak and the two tied the knot in 2013, immediately a year after her divorce from her first husband.
But the marriage did not last long. After giving birth to their son Reyansh, differences started creeping up between Shweta and Abhinav. Sadly, for the telly beauty in both her marriages, she had to face domestic violence and had no option but to take divorce.
But in this case, Abhinav reportedly misbehaved with her daughter Palak. Not the one to take it lightly, Shweta immediately filed a police complaint against him. Abhinav has repeatedly tried to gain media attention and demanded custody of Reyansh. However, to date, it’s Shweta who has Reyansh’s custody.
Her struggles, fight for justice, and still managing her career with such grace and poise indicate that Shweta is truly an inspiration for young women.
How Shweta Tiwari Re-invented herself
When actor Shweta Tiwari announced separation from husband Abhinav Kohli, and accused him of domestic violence, it shook her fans, more so because the actor had faced a similar situation in 2007 with first husband, Raja Chaudhary. And while dealing with the crisis, Shweta was also subjected to a lot of flak as many blamed her to be the reason for having a troubled marriage, again.
When asked how she managed to cope, Shweta says, “It’s easy for people to say, ‘Ladki ne hi kuch kiya hoga ya usme hi koi problem hogi, tabhi doosri shaadi bhi nahi chal payi’. When I got married at the peak of my career, people told me that it’s over for me. But I didn’t let people’s opinions penetrate my mind. I didn’t even care what my khandaan will say, who only asked me how I was doing once in five years. I just care about myself, my kids, and my immediate family.”
The actor, who has made a comeback on TV with the show, Mere Dad Ki Dulhan, says she is sorted in her head about what she wants to do in life. “If anyone tries to harm my family, they hold no importance in my life. I don’t give them attention. But whoever keeps my family happy, helps them grow, I will go that extra mile to do anything for them,” she adds.
And this statement of Shweta proves that she is such a strong motivation for all those women who have less courage to phase society’s ‘taunts’ and talks. and there is no doubt that Shweta is not only a strong woman but also a good parent to her children.
How Shweta raised Palak as a single parent?
Shweta also spoke about her journey of being a single parent and the criticism she faced for her failed marriages. She said, “A confident woman is often mistaken for being aggressive and arrogant… A lot of people criticize me for two failed marriages. There are many, who are three or four-time divorced, but no one talks about them because they are not in the limelight. People accuse celebrities more. The only support I have ever had is that I never stopped working and I am financially independent…I thank God that I am a working woman.”
