Shweta Tiwari reveals how her abusive marriages affected children, says 'Palak saw me getting beaten up, Reyansh knows the police'


Shweta Tiwari is one strong woman who has had her share of ups and downs in her marriages. The actress was formerly married to Raja Chaudhary and then Abhinav Kohli. She walked out of both the marriages citing domestic violence and abuse as the reason. Now, in an interview with an entertainment portal, Shweta spoke about how her troubled relationships affected her children, Palak Tiwari and Reyansh Kohli. 

Shweta shared, "Both my kids have a habit of hiding their pain. They somehow don’t show me that they are sad. I don’t understand how are they both so happy when so much is happening around them. So I feel sometimes, are they trying to hide? Should I take them to a counsellor and find out if they are trying to hide their feelings from me?"

The actress further added that Palak saw her getting beaten up by Raja and Reyansh, who is just 4 years old, knows about police and judges. "Palak does not show me that she is sad. She saw me getting beaten up. She saw women coming home. She was 6 years old when I decided to break off my marriage. She has seen police coming to my home. She has seen me going to the police station. My four-year-old son also knows about police and judges. It is not safe, but it is not only because of me. For a child to be knowing all this at this age is not healthy but I am not able to do anything about it because I have no way out. I am not able to get them out of this mess but I have no other option than go to the police," Shweta told. 

In a video on International Women's Day, Shweta advised her daughter Palak to learn from her experiences. She said, "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."
