Shweta Tiwari On Women Safety: Police, Law Will Never Change No Matter How Much We Discuss This
Here is what actress Shweta Tiwari told HerZindagi on the current scenario surrounding women safety.
The actress has worked in a number of shows, is currently working with actor Varun Badola in Mere Dad Ki Dulhan and on the web show of Ekta Kapoor's AltBalaji, Hum Tum Aur Them. Both shows talk on mature topics. While the former is a story on a single father and a daughter with a strong bond who comes across a lady who is single and willing to mingle, the latter is on two single parents Shiva and Yudi, who have a second chance at love. Shweta Tiwari is on a roll with work-life and since she is also a mother but before that a woman, HerZindagi asked her a question or two on the current scenario of women's safety and Parenting. Here is what she had to say.
Whenever you are going out, does the safety part ever bothers you since the general public believes that it is people like them who have to suffer the agony while the celebrities are always well-protected.
Answer: I have no fear as I go and come in a car and I live in Mumbai which is very safe at any time. My daughter also travels, comes in at 1 am sometimes, but I do not fear that. Yes when it comes to Delhi, there is fear. When it comes to rape it can happen anywhere. 'Yahan ka kanoon, police nahi badalta', no matter how much you and I discuss about this.
Insecurity is there of course. 'Darr lagta hai'. Look at the YouTube videos, look at Ola Uber drivers, but not all are the same I would like to stress on that as well, but some sure do. But if you are in Mumbai, the police is always with you.
Since we were short on time, we asked her a question on parenting as she is the mother of a daughter who is a young adult and a small son. She is a working mother and has been for a long time.
How do you balance such a busy work life with your children?

Answer: I started working right after having kids. Sp for me it is not that difficult. Yes, the kids do miss their mother sometimes. My daughter missed me the most because those days I dd not even know how to handle it all. How to balance my work and kids. Woh zyadatar mujhse door rai hai. My son used to stay with me.
I gave him three years, mai sochkar baithi thi that til the time he doesn't start walking, talking and be able to at least say that I am hungry, I dod not start working. Now I bring him to the sets, give him all my time and always keep him near. But when it comes to my daughter, she has grown so much that I guess I need her more now.
