Shweta Tiwari, who just wrapped up shooting for her TV show Mere Dad Ki Dulhan, used to also own an acting school in Mumbai till 2018. It's been two years that the actress had to shut that as it wasn't working well.
And now, an employee from that acting school named Rajesh Pandey has reached out to media houses for reporting about his non-payment of dues by the actress. As per Rajesh he was a teacher at Shweta's acting school and was paid 40k per month. But it's been almost two years that the actress has not paid his one monthly salary of 40,000 and a TDS amount of 12000 rupees.
Before coming to you with this information we did reach out to Shweta Tiwari to know what she has to say on all these allegations and the actress replied, "This is a baseless allegation. That person has been asking me for a TDS amount of 12000 which we have to claim. He is just trying to gain publicity out of my name."

Meanwhile, Rajesh in his statement had said, "In 2012, I joined Shweta's school as a teacher and was associated for almost 5 years. But she had to shut the institute as no more students were coming in. While shutting down the school Shweta had assured me of paying my remaining balance but now it's been two years and I haven't received that, which is around 52000. She had not paid TDS of 10% which she used to cut from my salary so that I can go and at least claim that. But now when I have come out and spoke about the matter in the media she has agreed to pay the TDS amount to the government which I can claim. But she has not given any clarity on my salary."

Rajesh also added, "In this pandemic all schools are shut from the last 6-7 months and it has become extremely difficult for me to survive and meet my daily needs. I am unable to pay my house rent and now my landlord has asked me to vacate his place. I have been constantly asking for my salary to her but she is not replying to my messages. I am hoping Shweta will return my money. I respect her as a woman but this behaviour of her is unacceptable."
