The actress is currently home-quarantined. She lives in Mumbai with her daughter Palak Tiwari, who is making her debut in Vivek Oberoi's Rosie: The Saffron Chapter.

It's so edgy at times. When will we come out of this pandemic?" Shweta said. She further told that her 3-years old son Reyansh Kohli is with his father Abhinav Kohli. Shweta and Abhinav have parted ways. 

Shweta told the daily that she will remain home-quarantined till October 1 and her next test will be done on September 27. "I am drinking lots of hot water essentially and reading a lot. I had symptoms for the first three days. I got tested on September 17. But now I am okay. I have to quarantine myself till October 1 at least. My next test will happen on September 27," she added.
