Shweta Kawatra Gohil is revelling in her transformation

Friday, October 05, 2018

We happened to bump into television and film actress Shweta Kawatra Gohil at a peace symposium in the city recently. While catching up with us on her life, Shweta said that she’s in “a happy space”. Bringing up her six-year-old daughter and working for the AltBalaji web series ‘Karrle Tu Bhi Mohabbat’ as well as a recent stint in Vipul Shah’s ‘Baal Veer’, Shweta has her hands full. What’s more she and husband Manav have opened a Japanese spa in the suburbs called ‘Areopagus’ with trained therapists in the art of shiatsu and other treatments. Shweta is also deeply into Japanese Nichiren Buddhism, which she says is the reason for her unconditional happiness. As she says: “Life always has challenges but Buddhism shows me the way to overcome every challenge and be victorious. I don’t get thrown off by challenges anymore and through Buddhist philosophy I have transformed from a cribbing, complaining person to one who can have appreciation and respect everyone in my environment.” As an instance, Shweta tells us she had worked on ‘Bal Veer’ while managing her daughter Zahra-Tabeetha’s schedules at play school and managing food for the family (the cook had left) which was a stretch. “I would get up at 3am every day, report on the sets at 6am and pick up my daughter from play school at 12.30pm,” she says. Thus playing both homemaker and career woman simultaneously! But it’s not like she doesn’t take time off to chill, either. Sometimes the family will take off for a road trip across New Zealand (or some other attractive overseas destination) and spend weeks on a free-flowing trip, taking in the scenery, talking to the people and just walking around “breathing the air”, booking their hotels as they go along. “Many people said it wasn’t advisable to follow an unplanned itinerary with a growing child in the back seat of the car. Yet I believe that it is important for Zahra, in order to make her realise that there’s a wide, different world out there!” says Shweta.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Today, you may be stumped by some mysterious and wonderful event. That, or you may encounter an unexpected yet advantageous incident. It may not exactly be path-breaking, but it is sure to make you take stock of things. Also, you may find it difficult to meet deadlines today. Nevertheless, let people know how important your work is, says Ganesha.
