Shweta Tiwari has had her own share of ups and downs in her personal life. She walked out of two bad marriages citing domestic violence. Shweta was married to Raja Chaudhary and then Abhinav Kohli. The actress has a daughter named Palak from her first marriage and a son named Reyansh with Abhinav. On the occasion of International Women's Day 2021, Shweta shared a powerful message for those who are victims of domestic violence. In the video, Shweta urged women to speak up for themselves.
In the video, Shweta said, "I know a lot of women around me are victims of domestic violence, who are quiet against it because they are scared that if they break their silence, what will happen to their kids? But remember, your kids are learning from you every day. If you stay quiet, they will learn to remain silent. They will end up going through the domestic violence. If you take a step, your kids will learn the difference between right and the wrong, and grow stronger in life."
Shweta further added that even today, people tell her that her decision to walk out of her marriage wasn't correct. She then said that her daughter Palak has grown up to be sensible and stronger because of what she did. "A lot of people said a lot of things to me. Even now they tell me I should have thought about my kids, my daughter. But because of what I did, my daughter has grown to be sensible, intelligent and strong. She understood the good and the bad," Shweta shared.
Towards the end of the video, the Mere Dad Ki Dulhan actress advised her daughter Palak to learn from her experiences and be strong. "I am with you always, and always will be. But only you have to fight your battles on your own. I may not be there for you in every situation but you have to step-up for yourself and believe in yourself because until you won’t, people won’t. If you won’t fight your battle, people won’t trust your truth. They won’t help you. Whatever I have learned in my life, the experiences I have had, I want you to learn from them. Be strong," Shweta shared.
