She won the whopping prize money of Rs 1crore and became an International star overnight. The media around the globe carried the news on front page because Tiwari’s victory was no ordinary victory. It was an extraordinary victory because Shweta Tiwari became Bigg Boss’s First Lady Contestant to win the honor after three consecutive Male Contestants! Another striking factor of the victory was that Shweta Tiwari had outscored her close rival the Great Khali of WWF fame, who seemed to be more popular globally than Shweta Tiwari . She also defeated television stars like Ashmit Patel and Dolly Bindra and she took away the award by maintaining her cool temperament and dignified character in the Bigg Boss house for 14 weeks.

Shweta Tiwari faced a bitter married life with her first husband Shweta Tiwari met Raja Chaudhary in 1998 and fell in love. Shweta Tiwari was just 19 years and was a successful TV actress while Raja was 23 years and a struggling Bhojpuri film actor. Hence when Shweta revealed to her mother about her marriage plans to Raja, she cautioned her but Shweta was blindfolded in love. She ignored her mother’s warning and married him. In 2000 they had a daughter and then started the trauma of domestic violence and abuses as Raja was a flop actor in Bhojpuri films and would demand money from Shweta. The brawls reached a climax when Raja attempted to kill their only daughter hence Shweta decided to walk out of her marital home and seek divorce. However taking divorce was not easy it took 6-7 years and after 7 years in 2007, Shweta got relief from a life of hell. Shweta Tiwari found true love in Abhinav Kohli After a troublesome marriage with Raja Chaudhary, Shweta Tiwari came in contact with TV actor Abhinav Kohli during the making of the TV serial ‘Jaane Kya Baat Hui’ in 2009. Soon they developed affection for each other and in Abhinav  Shweta she found a gentleman, who was kind and understanding towards Shweta's daughter. The love for Abhinav blossomed more after Shweta Tiwari went to Big Boss season 4 and in her absence Abhinav took care of her mother and her daughter. Thus on July 13, 2013 both Shweta Tiwari and Abhinav Kohli tied the nuptial knot. The couple is blessed with a baby boy on November 27, 2016. Shweta is happy in her present marriage.
