Throwback: Shweta Tiwari’s struggle to keep her daughter Palak with her after divorce


Shweta Tiwari became a household name after essaying the role of Prerna Bajaj in Ekta Kapoor’s ‘Kasautii Zindagii Kay’. Professionally Shweta is a noted and celebrated TV actress with popular shows to her credit.

On the personal front, Shweta Tiwari has had a tumultuous time as far as her intimate relationships are concerned. She was first married to Raja Chaudhary. Reportedly, Shweta got married to Raja when she was just 18 years old and it was only after her marriage that she started her television career, where she gained a lot of fame from the Star Television show, ‘Kasautii Zindagii Kay’. Shweta Tiwari was the female lead of the show.

On the personal front, Shweta was allegedly in an abusive marriage and finally Shweta decided to end her relationship and divorced Raja Chaudhary. She and Raja shared a daughter named Palak, who was only 12 years at that time.

As per the media reports back then, Shweta had spoken about how Palak was reacting to the idea of her parents divorcing each other. Back then Shweta said, “Palak, who is only 12 years old, has seen the atrocities done by her father on me. He beat and harassed me many times in front of him. But she always had a hope that her father would love her as she watches Raja on TV. He made many false claims about me that I would not allow him to meet my daughter.”

Shweta further spoke about how she managed to keep her daughter with her and move on from the divorce. She said, “During the divorce, we made two proposals, either take a house, which will also be in the name of our daughter Palak. Or take a house which will be named after him and stay away from Palak. He immediately chose the latter option. He wanted to get a house to take away from our life and I bought Shanti (peace of mind) for my daughter and myself at this cost.”

Today Palak Tiwari is making more headlines than her mom Shweta and her upbringing is often lauded by all. Palak, for her part has always been the biggest champion and supporter for her mom and never shies away from talking about what a pillar of strength her mother is or how much she means to her.

In fact, recently, even Shweta’s ex Raja Chaudhary also praised Shweta for doing such an amazing job in raising Palak. He was also thankful that she facilitated the meetup between him and his daughter after so many years.
