Shweta Tiwari BREAKS Silence on Her Failed Marriages With Raja & Abhinav: 'When You Get Cheated...'

July 09,2024

Shweta Tiwari has revealed that she has been cheated on multiple times in her past relationships. Shweta, who became a household name after playing Prerna in Kasautii Zindagii Kay, was previously married to Bhojpuri actor Raja Chaudhary but the duo got divorced in 2007. She later married Abhinav Kohli, but parted ways in 2019.

In a recent interview, Shweta spoke at length about what stopped her from filing for a divorce from her first husband Raja Chaudhary despite facing domestic violence. Shweta has a daughter, named Palak Tiwari, from her first marriage.

Speaking to Galatta India, Shweta said, “When you get cheated for the first time, it hits you. You cry, you feel, ‘God, why me?’ You try to fix it, you try to do everything possible to undo it. The second time when it happens, you will realise, this will never stop hurting, this is how it is going to be. When the third time you get cheated on, it stops hurting you. It stops having an impact on you. Now, when someone cheats on me, when someone hurts me, I don’t complain about it to them. I simply get detached. It’s in their personality to hurt me and now it’s in my personality to not get hurt.”

She continued, “I don’t give them that power anymore. And suddenly they realise, ‘Oh she has left.’ So far, I have witnessed whosever lives I have left and walked away, are regretting.”

When asked what took her so long to come out of the abusive relationship, Shweta said, “In my entire family, nobody had ever done a love marriage, I had. There was also caste problems that existed in our family, yet I had an inter-caste marriage. People had already started to taunt my mother and judging my marriage. On top of that, if I filed for a divorce, it would have been a whole different thing. At that point in time, it wasn’t that I was not financially independent, but it was more of an emotional thing. I was worried for my daughter not having a father while growing up. It was later that I realised that you can have a happy family only when you are mentally happy. It’s not a good upbringing for your child to be in a dysfunctional family. If two people can’t co-exist, it is better to part ways.”

In 2013, Shweta tied the knot for the second time with actor Abhinav Kohli after dating him for three years. The couple was blessed with a son, Reyansh Kohli. However, in 2019, the actress filed a complaint of domestic violence against Abhinav. They eventually got divorced.

On the work front, Shweta Tiwari will soon be seen in Rohit Shetty’s directorial Singham Again, which stars Ajay Devgn, Deepika Padukone, Arjun Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Akshay Kumar and Ranveer Singh.
