Bombay High Court has granted actress Shweta Tiwari custody of her son Reyansh. Her estranged husband Abhinav Kohli has reportedly been given visitation rights.
Actor Shweta Tiwari and her estranged husband Abhinav Kohli have been fighting the custody battle for their son Reyansh for the past several months. According to a TOI report, the Bombay High Court has now granted Shweta custody of her son Reyansh and Abhinav has been given visitation rights. The report also stated that Abhinav has been given access to meet Reyansh for “two hours in a week in their building premises, in the presence of family members.”
Shweta opened up about getting custody of her son and stated that she is satisfied with the judgment. “This is what I wanted and I am honestly satisfied with the judgement. Abhinav would follow me everywhere I went in the last two years. He would end up in Delhi or Pune or wherever I travelled with Reyansh for my shows and create a ruckus. It was mentally exhausting for both, me and my child,” she was quoted as saying by TOI. Also Read- Shehbaz Badesha Opened Up On Sister Shehnaaz Gill’s Relationship With Sidharth Shukla
In his petition, Abhinav cited that Shweta is a busy actress and hence doesn’t have enough time for Reyansh. Talking about it, the actress asserted that questioning her for being a working mother would be raising a question to the rights of every single parent who has to work for a living.
“I work for my family and to give them a good lifestyle, what’s wrong in that? But he kept using that against me and I am glad that the court dismissed those allegations,” Shweta added.

On the other hand, Abhinav Kohli also talked about the court’s verdict and told ETimes, “It is a huge relief for me as I have been fighting the custody battle for months. I haven’t met my son for 11 months, so I am elated to finally be able to see him. This is just the beginning and there’s a long way to go. This is not a victory for me, it is my son Reyansh’s victory. He has won between Shweta and my fight.

The Court in its judgement said, “There was no material, which prima facie indicates that the custody of the child with the mother was detrimental to his welfare and development. At such a tender age, a child needs the company of the mother and hence keeping him in her custody appears more natural and conducive for the development of the child.”
The spat came to light when the actress revealed that she was a victim of domestic violence. However, she endured it all for a long time for the sake of her children, before breaking all ties with Abhinav.
In May this year, Shweta had shared shocking CCTV footage of her ex-husband in which he could be seen snatching their son from her arms. She had also claimed that Abhinav physically abused her and Reyansh.
