Shweta Tiwari is best known for her role in Kasautii Zindagii Kay from 2001. She has also worked on the shows Parvarrish, Begusarai, Mere Dad Ki Dulhan and Main Hoon Aparajita.

Palak shared that her mother would be away working long hours for her television shows and if she would go visit her, she would refuse to leave her mother's side when she was shooting.
Speaking to Mid-day, Palak also shared that she's quite attached to her mother. She said, "I feel she would be keeping much more tabs on me if she didn't realise I was doing a Salman sir film. But she feels so secure that it's a film with him so everything must be going so smoothly that she doesn't worry as much. Also in general in our relationship, it's not a 50-50. It's a proper ek tarfa pyaar (one-sided love). I'm obsessed with my mom and she just bears me. She has to, because I'm her daughter, but no, I'm obsessed with my mom. I still call her 30 times a day and she ignores most of my calls."
Palak became known after her appearance in the music video of Harrdy Sandhu's chartbusting hit song Bijlee Bijlee. She has also appeared in the music video of the song Mangta Hai Kya with Aditya Seal. After Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan, she will next be seen in The Virgin Tree which stars Sanjay Dutt.
