Personal lifeEdit

 
Tiwari and her daughter Palak in 2012

Tiwari married actor Raja Chaudhary in 1998. She filed for a divorce in 2007 after nine years of marriage.[6] Tiwari reported she suffered a troubled relationship characterised by Raja’s alcoholism and violence. She had complained how he used to beat her up on a daily basis. He used to turn up on the sets of her shows and misbehave with her.[7][8] They have a daughter named Palak.[9]

Tiwari and actor Abhinav Kohli got married on 13 July 2013 after dating for almost three years.[10] On 27 November 2016, Tiwari gave birth to a baby boy.[11][12] Reports of problems in their marriage first emerged in 2017.[13] In August 2019, Tiwari filed a complaint of domestic violence against Kohli alleging harassment by Kohli towards her and her daughter Palak. Kohli was taken into police custody.[14][15] Later on, through an Instagram post, Palak clarified that Kohli had never physically molested her or touched her inappropriately. However, he had persistently made inappropriate and disturbing remarks that would have greatly embarrassed and provoked any woman.[16]
