TV actor Shweta Tiwari , 32, has been through a lot in her personal life, but says her 12-year-old daughter, Palak, was the one constant support in her life and their bonding became stronger while battling problems together.
“I think whatever has been happening in my life, after that the bonding between my daughter and me has become stronger. She was with me through all the troubles and difficulties,” says Shweta, who was just 18 years old when she married Raja Chaudhary but after seven years of marriage, the two separated. Their divorce was finalised last year.
The 32-year-old’s hectic schedule and erratic working hours do not allow her to spend quality time with Palak, who has found a solution in the form of letters to stay connected with her busy mom.
“We don’t have time for Mother’s Day. My daughter always tries to make me feel special... She writes letters and makes cards. She writes things, which I don’t know she wants to say. Many times if she has done something wrong, she confesses in these letters... She sticks them in the entire house and when I come back, I read them,” says Shweta.
The actor, currently seen as a hands-on-mother in Parvarrish — Kuchh Khatti Kuchh Meethi, is hard pressed for time in real life. Ask her if she fears missing important events in Palak’s life, and she says: “This is the reality of my life. I miss most of her important events. There are times when I’m not there with her. I feel bad and guilty for being so busy.”
