02 Apr 2021: She's been inhuman to me, Abhinav Kohli on Shweta Tiwari
Shweta Tiwari said in a recent interview that her four-year-old son Reyansh "knows about police, judges," because of her abusive marriage with Abhinav Kohli.
She also accused Kohli of threatening to ruin her image.
In response, Kohli refuted those allegations and asked, "Who has called the police (in the first place)?"
Further, he accused the TV star of separating him from his son.
Allegations: Tiwari alleged Kohli threatened to harm her reputation
Speaking to Bollywood Bubble, Tiwari mentioned how Kohli threatened her with maligning posts.
"Ek aurat ki image kharab karne me kya lagta hai, just one post [It takes only one post to ruin a woman's image]," the actress had quoted him.
Replying to this, Kohli told Zoom that Tiwari wants to paint him as "anti-woman" and that's why she has been making such allegations.
Reply: Ruining her image is ruining my image too, says Kohli
"Ruining her image is ruining my image too," Kohli pointed out, and added that he was simply talking about the injustice done against his son in the posts.
He said, "Agar maine jhooth bola ho tabhi main aap ko badnaam karunga [I'll be only maligning you if I lie]."
He lashed out at Tiwari for suggesting their son learned about police because of him.
His side: 'Tiwari used police to keep me from meeting my son'
Kohli pointed out that it was Tiwari who dialed the cops to dissuade him from going to the house.
"Every time, I would try and go, you [Tiwari] would call the police, so how does he [Reyansh] learn about the police?"
He went on to stress on an arrangement where he gets to meet his son regularly, alleging Tiwari was separating him from Reyansh.
Fact: 'Condition of a man in society today…is very cruel'
"You see, the condition of a man in society today and internationally also, that you can be thrown out of the house and you cannot sleep with your child anymore because the lady of the house wishes so. This is very cruel," Kohli highlighted.
Backstory: Tiwari married Kohli in 2013, welcomed son three years later
After getting married to Raja Chaudhary at the age of 19, Tiwari had filed for divorce in 2007.
Palak is their daughter. The break-up was allegedly due to Chaudhary's alcoholism and violence.
She then got married to Kohli in 2013, and welcomed their son Reyansh in 2016.
Three years later, Tiwari filed a case of domestic violence against Kohli and he was taken into custody.
