Television actress Shweta Tiwari recently filed a complaint against her husband Abhinav Kohli alleging the later for domestic violence against her daughter. After the filing of reports’ there was no follow up from the actress which left media perplexed. Shweta’s daughter, Palak, today took to her Instagram account writing an open letter, informing the people of the situation that her family is facing.
In her letter, Palak thanked everyone who reached out to extend their support to the family. She also cleared the air by saying that media is not circulating the correct facts and is assuming her mother to be a victim of domestic abuse. By writing an open letter, she chose to throw some light on the exact circumstances.
Calling her mother to be the strongest person, she wrote, “The media does not have the facts and they never will. I, Palak Tiwari, was on multiple occasions a victim of domestic abuse NOT my mother, except for the day that the complaint was filed he hadn’t hit my mother. As a reader of the news its often easy to forget that you do not know the truth of what goes on behind closed doors or how much fortitude my mother has shown in both her marriages. This is someone’s household you’re writing about, someone’s life you’re discussing. Many of you fortunately haven’t even dealt with something of such heinous proportions, and hence you have no right to comment, discuss or paint someone else’s image through your biased, misinformed views. It’s beyond disgusting and its time that i stand up for my mother for she is the strongest person i know and since out of all of us I’m the only person who’s witnessed her struggle day in and day out, my opinion is the only one that matters”.
She also added that by domestic violence she doesn’t mean that Abhinav has physically molested or even touched her inappropriately. According to her, Abhinav on several occasions made disturbing remarks and his derogatory words were quite impactful to provoke any woman. She also expressed her disgust over the actions of his step father whose words questioned her dignity.
As a proud daughter of a self sufficient woman, she wrote, “Seeing our lives through social media, reading about us in the papers can only tell you so much about our struggles, but never enough to comment on them. Today as a proud daughter, I’m here to tell you that my mother is the most respectable individual that I’ve ever come across, the MOST self sufficient, one who’s never required or even had a man provide for her and has always taken the social standing of a “man” in both the families that we’ve been a part of.”
19-year-old Palak is Shweta’s daughter from her first marriage with actor Raja Chaudhary. The couple separated in the year 2007 after nine years of marriage, due to Shweta’s allegation of domestic violence against Chaudhary. They got divorced in 2012 and the TV actress tied knot for the second time in the year 2013 with Abhinav Kohli.
