‘Hum Tum and Them’ will mark Shweta’s digital debut. And it’s a pleasant surprise to see the actress shed her ‘Sanskaari bahu’ image. Talking about how the show made her come out of her comfort zone, Tiwari said, “I’m truly honoured to be a part of this project,not only because of it’s one of a kind storyline but also the fact that it pushed me out of my comfort zone, right from chopping my hair to portraying the kind of intimacy and vulnerability that I didn’t think I was courageous enough to show, and I didn’t make it easy. I cried, a lot, felt anxious every single day but there’s irrefutably no other team of people that could’ve pushed me more effectively. I know I was scared, God Knows I was, but @deeyasingh1, @sahir_raza and @akshay0beroi were so incredibly patient. Thank You Diya for supporting me and making sure I do justice to your vision of Shiva, even when I thought I couldn’t. @ektaravikapoor I can’t thank you enough for entrusting me with yet another beautiful character. Hope you guys take this journey with me and accept this character for who she is. Lots of Love(sic).”

Ppl will sledge u demean u for on-screen kissing n intimacy but u have to know that women r not meant fit into moulds of society …it’s their choice wat they wanna b and u wanted a new character to play …ignore unnecessary pressure…ur looking lovely classy elegant! DIYA sahir have done an amazing job! Own d new u( character) d jalebi is a lot like Shweta ….this show is ur @akshay0beroi … ur nudge into d new(sic).”
