Even though Erica Jennifer Fernandes left no stone unturned to fill into the shoes of Prerna in Ekta Kapoor’s show, Kasautii Zindagii Kay, but whenever the tune of Chaahat Ke Safar Mein plays in the background, all we remember is Shweta Tiwari. The red dupatta slipping off, a couple twinning in black and their sizzling chemistry, that’s what Chaahat Ke Safar Mein was for the television lovers. Shweta became a household name, and in her professional journey of more than two decades in the industry, she had revolutionised her roles and choices in scripts.

With an inspirational career graph, Shweta Tiwari had a completely opposite personal life which was nothing but a roller-coaster one. It was in 1998 when Shweta was just 19-year-old, she had tied the knot with the then struggling actor, Raja Chaudhary. Shweta had met Raja through her friend, who was his cousin and soon, their friendship had blossomed into love. After a few months of courtship period, Shweta and Raja had decided to take their relationship to the next level. But because Raja was a struggling actor at that time, Shweta’s mother wasn’t supportive of their marriage decision. But Shweta had decided to marry Raja, and two years into marital bliss, the couple had welcomed their daughter, Palak Tiwari. A few years into married life, their relationship had gone toxic and Shweta became a victim of domestic violence. In 2007, Raja and Shweta had officially separated and were granted divorce.
Shweta Tiwari had turned 40 on October 4, 2020, and the celebrations were doubled as after recovering from the novel coronavirus, she had stepped out for the first time. Shweta had celebrated her birthday with her 20-year-old daughter, Palak Tiwari. While Shweta was flooded with wishes and showered with love on her special day, her ex-husband, Raja Chaudhary also took to his IG handle a day later to wish his ex-wife on her birthday. Raja posted a picture of Shweta and Palak from Marine Drive, Mumbai and simply captioned it as “Happy Birthday”.
Shweta Tiwari had twinned with her daughter, Palak Tiwari as they had stepped out to celebrate her birthday. Shweta and Palak had made for a stunning mother-daughter duo, in a red-coloured top and white jeans/pants. Sharing the goofy pictures with Palak, Shweta had captioned her post with an array of hearts. Palak had wished her ‘Junior Tiwari’ with beautiful mother-daughter pictures from their outing and had captioned it as “Happy birthday to my Jr. Tiwari @shweta.tiwari.” Palak had also baked a delicious cake for Shweta’s 40th birthday.

After more than two decades of Shweta Tiwari's debut, we will finally get to see her mini-me, Palak Tiwari making her name in the industry, following her mother's footsteps. About her Bollywood debut, Palak had announced on her social media that she'll be starring opposite Vivek Oberoi in Rosie: The Saffron Chapter. In July, sharing the first look, Palak had written, "Super excited to share the news of my debut in & as #Rosie! And here's my first poster! Thank you #PrernaVArora @vivekoberoi for the opportunity & @visalmisra for the guidance." On her post, her dad, Raja Chaudhary had commented, "Way to go" followed by a thumbs-up emoji.
Post her divorce with Raja Chaudhary, love had knocked the door of Shweta Tiwari’s heart again and she had tied the knot with actor, Abhinav Kohli. In 2016, Shweta and Abhinav were blessed with a son, Reyansh Kohli. Everything seemed greener on their side until a report emerged in the media about trouble in Abhinav and Shweta’s paradise in 2019. Since then, Abhinav and Shweta have been living separately and the kids are staying with their mother. But when Shweta tested positive with COVID-19, she had sent Reyansh to her father’s house. Speaking about the same in an interview with ETimes, Shweta had said, "Well, thankfully I have sufficient rooms. So, I have quarantined myself. Palak (daughter) is also very particular about social distancing. It's a tough time no doubt. Even on the sets, it's so difficult to shoot. It's so edgy at times. When will we come out of this pandemic?" When asked about Reyansh, she had retorted, "I have sent him to his father."
