The saga surrounding actors Shweta Tiwari and estranged husband, Abhinav Kohli has indeed been going on for a long time now. From police complaints to custody problems and defaming each other to actively talking about it, Kohli and Tiwari continue to find themselves at loggerheads, Even though it has been a while since Tiwari went quiet on this issue and only recently when asked about her son Reyaansh not being able to meet his father, she mentioned about keeping safe distance due to COVID-19.
In a recent bare-it-all interview with ETimes TV, Kohli opened up on several things.
"I am only talking now because I feel cheated. From September last year to May 2020, Shweta has been in touch with me and I have taking care of her and my baby's requirements. Car mein petrol bharane se lekar, Reyaansh ke liye kuch kharidna hai, I was always there. Whenever she needed me be it 2 am or 4 am I was there because I wanted to stay with my baby, but now she is not letting me meet him. She has treated me like a servant. I just want someone from Human Rights or any NGO to come forward and help me reunite with my baby. It has been more than a month and 15 days that I have not met or seen him, please someone help me. All this while I kept quite thinking that her behaviour is good to me, so it is better for our child because he is getting the love of both his parents. On May 14, while I was talking to Reyaansh, he said, "Mujhe papa ki yaad nahi aati'. I was shocked that a 4 year-old boy doesn't even know the meaning of the word 'yaad'. I told Shweta you haven't even filed for divorce and you are teaching him such stuff so that you can take him away from me. He used to be with me from morning to night, that kid will never say such a thing. I've tried my best to make this relationship work," he said.
He further alleged that he went to meet Reyaansh on May 14th when Tiwari called up the cops and dragged him outside, "I met my son Reyaansh last time on May 15. Shweta let me meet him and at that time she wasn't scared about the coronavirus. But suddenly she is not letting me meet him (Reyaansh) and is making an excuse that due to COVID-19 she wants to keep Reyaansh away from me. On May 15, you allow me to meet the child and suddenly you are talking about coronavirus. For two months I myself didn't try to meet our son for his safety since I was stepping out frequently to buy groceries or other stuff. On May 14th, Shweta made a video call as Reyaansh was crying and wanted to speak to me. Suddenly, when Shweta left the room and shut the door, he yelled very loudly and threw away the iPad, I got scared for him and immediately rushed to meet him. Shweta called the cops and dragged me out of the house. I mean what was my fault, I got worried for my child. During these two months, I stayed in contact with Reyaansh over phone calls and video calls. And when I went to meet him on May 14th, she called the police. I was pleading with the cops to let me meet my baby. I cried for three hours that day at the police station as I just wanted to meet my baby and was feeling helpless. The cops were telling me 'Arre Kohli sahab aap chup hojaao aap mard hokar kyun ro rahe ho' (policemen asked me to stop crying). I told them I just want to meet my child, what crime have I done that you have dragged me here. On May 15th, I again went to her house because I don't want my son to grow up thinking that his father didn't even try and his mother is so strong and influential that she dragged me out of the house by calling the cops. I played with him. But after that whenever I have tried to meet Reyaansh, she has started making excuses that baby is sleeping. They just shut the door on me. I would shout at the door pyaaru pyaaru but nobody opened the door," the actor said.
He also stated that he took a backseat in his career as Tiwari decided to work again saying, "We had a very cordial relationship like a proper husband and wife. She stopped me from meeting my kid saying that she fears COVID-19, but she is herself meeting her co-star from Mere Dad Ki Dulhan. She can have all the fun, but I can't meet my baby. Even during my second innings when I started doing shows like Qayamat Ki Raat, Ishq Mein Marjawan and Daayan after sometime she took up work and I took a backseat in my career. I rejected few shows which were offered to me at that time because I felt at least one parent should be with the kid. She didn't let me speak to my son even on Father's Day and my birthday. She is not letting me, meet my baby if I am going there to meet, she calls the cops. I am feeling helpless."
