Palak Tiwari reveals her side of story, while Abhinav Kohli’s mother supports son

Families of actress Shweta Tiwari and husband Abhinav Kohli have resorted to mudslinging with regards to the couple’s marital issues. After the ugly Sunday episode when the couple, Shweta’s mother and daughter Palak spent over four hours at the Samta Nagar Police Station, Kandivali, now Palak and Kohli’s mother Poonam have come out in support of their respective loved ones.

At first, Palak took to Instagram and thanked those in support of her and her mother, but then graduated to clarify a few things. Her gram read, “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.”

About allegations of molestation against Abhinav, Palak wrote, “Abhinav Kohli has never physically molested me, or touched me inappropriately. Before spreading something of this caliber or even believing it, its imperative you as readers know the veracity of the facts that you’re blindly divulging endlessly. However, he did persistently make inappropriate and disturbing remarks the impact of which is only known to my mother and I, and if any woman from any walk of life were to hear them she would be greatly embarrassed and provoked too.”
“Words which would question the standing dignity of any woman, which you wouldn’t expect to hear from any man, especially not your “father”. 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.”
On the other hand, Abhinav’s mother Poonam has denied all the allegations against her son and alleged that Shweta wanted to get rid of him and divorce him.
