Kasautii Zindagii Kay fame, Shweta Tiwari and her actor-husband, Abhinav Kohli are often under media scrutiny for their relationship. While Shweta got second time lucky in love when she found her soulmate Abhinav, he has also accepted her and her daughter from the first husband with an open heart. Despite their constant denial on the rumours about troubles in their marriage, Abhinav and Shweta’s relationship often make it to the headlines.

Yet again, Shweta has come out in open to clear the air and give an exact explanation about how such rumours started. In an interview with The Times Of India, Shweta shared why Abhinav is not seen with her in parties and get-togethers, "I will tell you what really happened. Abhinav’s father passed away the same year I got pregnant. Abhinav’s parents stayed in Bengaluru, so he had to stay there for some time before he could get his mother here. His father was a retired air force officer and his mother owned a publishing company. Abhinav required some time before he could wrap up everything and be in Mumbai with us. He stayed there for almost a year.”
Elaborating how rumours about the ‘trouble in her paradise’ started and people used to call her asking 'Hey, is everything well in your marriage? We don’t see your husband with you.’, Shweta remarked, “Now, here people started noticing that I was going to parties alone and was not seen with him. Even after Reyansh was born, he used to come for some time and go back. So, people felt why are they not staying together? Some people had the nerve to even call me and ask, 'Hey, is everything well in your marriage? We don’t see your husband with you.’ Now, why should I tell people what happened? People need gossip. I felt so weird that just because my husband was away for some time, people found a reason to gossip and therefore I decided to stop giving any explanations to anyone."
After two years of break from her acting career, Shweta is making her theatre debut with the play, Jab We Separated, which revolves around a fragile husband-wife relationship. Speaking about the same, she stated, “There may be many plays around the husband-wife relationship, but what matters is the treatment. About marriage, I feel that many marriages are breaking up these days because people have options of getting out of it. Divorce is easy these days. First it was taboo... women were dependent on their husbands and at home. Now, they are independent, educated and not suppressed. So somewhere, husbands are not able to accept this and women have also become less tolerant. They feel it is better to leave a relationship and move on to someone else.” (Also Read: Abhinav Kohli Gave Birthday Surprise To Shweta Tiwari, But According To Palak, She Wasn't Impressed)
Shweta further added, “Our play revolves around that idea; how you need to find ways to be together even if there is trouble. These days, people feel that if they move on with someone else, they will find happiness. But even that relationship will require adjustment, compromise and good communication. So, if you can mend your ways and save your marriage, why move on with someone else? You can’t keep doing that again and again.”
When asked, “Do you feel that it is difficult to handle a relationship in modern times?”, Shweta retorted, “I feel both individuals need space and they should respect it and give it to each other if they wish to have it. I feel respect is important in a relationship and I find that lacking these days in couples. During our parents’ time, husbands used to happily compliment their wives and there was no sarcasm.”
Shweta went on to add, “Now, I see that a husband and wife are no longer part of the same team in public gatherings. Many times, the husband is passing a remark on the wife’s family or the wife finds an opportunity to pull him down and so on. This shows that somewhere, there is lack of communication and understanding, which is weakening the foundation of a beautiful relationship.”
When asked if embracing motherhood was difficult for her second time, Shweta revealed, “I had Palak when I was only 19 years old. I was a kid myself and I was also working that time, so my mother helped me bring her up. I hardly remember much about her childhood. Now, with Reyansh, I feel it is my first time as a mother. I am thoroughly enjoying it. I love doing everything for him. Though I have help, I do all the little things that a mother enjoys doing for the child. I even take him everywhere I travel for work. It is one of the most beautiful phases of my life.” (Also Read: These Pics Of Shweta Tiwari's Babies Palak And Reyansh Tell That Step-Siblings Can Bond Too)
