Husband & Children
On 25 October 2021, Sheetal Tiwari tied the knot with Krish Waringe. The couple had an intimate wedding function with just a few close family members post the court wedding. Sheetal Tiwari, when asked about having a court wedding, said,
The date was zeroed in on a couple of days ago. Though we were discussing marriage, we wanted to spend some more time to know each other better. He proposed to me on February 14 this year and hence, we wanted to delay the wedding. However, his mother insisted that we tie the knot soon and we gave into our families’ request. We have opted for a court marriage, as we won’t be able to make arrangements for a proper wedding owing to the time constraint. I will have a haldi and mehendi ceremony at my residence a day prior. We plan to host a reception next month in Mumbai.”
Sheetal opted for a simple lightweight red saree for her wedding look. She explained her look as,
I have tied the knot on-screen so many times, I have always wanted a court wedding. All the major decisions in my life are impromptu – right from me doing Splitsvilla to my wedding.”
Sheetal Tiwari started her career as a model. She has walked the ramp for a number of big designers including Gangan Kumar, Sumit Das Gupta, and Richa Singh.

Sheetal debuted as an actor in 2016 with Star Plus’s daily soap “Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai” in which she played the supporting role as Naira’s (lead) best friend Suknya.
Sheetal, in an interview, revealed that after doing Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, she started focusing more on her acting career, but she could not get any acting projects for more than 2 years, and then she decided to switch her career option and training of airlines to become an air hostess. She said,
When I joined Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, I had no idea of this industry. I belong to a very simple family. After Yeh Rishta, I realized that I can do something great in the field of acting. When I started focusing on acting, I had no work at that time. For two consecutive years, I sat. If you keep on waiting for another project after work, then nothing is more painful than this. You start doubting your own potential.”
Sher further added,
Especially for an outsider, it is very difficult. At one point I had given up hope. I thought that this would not happen and I had joined the airlines. My training also started. At the same time, I was offered a South film. Then I had both options. Listening to my heart, I left the air hostess training in the middle and came back here. Now it has been decided, no matter what happens, do not leave this field.”
In 2018, Sheetal featured in Shahid Khan’s directorial Marathi Film “Jhing Premachi.” She played the character of Jyoti opposite Sandesh Gou and received huge appreciation for her performance in the film.

Sheetal Tiwari, in 2021, became part of the Indian drama television series “Namak Issk Ka.”Atif Khan’s directorial romantic social drama was aired on Colors TV and featured Shruti Sharma, Aditya Ojha, Aamir S Khan, and Monalisa along with Sheetal Tiwari. Sheetal played the character of Gunjan Verma, a simple yet stubborn girl who is the youngest in the family. During a media interaction, Sheetal Tiwari disclosed that playing the role of Gunjan took her a lot of preparations, and it was not an easy ride for her. She said,
My character in ‘Namak Ishq Ka’ is a simple girl who is very stubborn and being the youngest in the family, she has been used to getting all her wishes fulfilled and pampered. Gunjan can go to any lengths to get back her love of life. In reality, I am very much simple and not at all this crazy. I have always been loved at home but not blindly pampered and I have always somehow never made crazy demands in front of my family. This is like playing another extreme of my personality, but a good actor is someone who gets into the skin of every character and does justice to that role. So, playing this character is not a cakewalk and I had to work upon it, it is more like playing the opposite of ‘real me’. Although in the show, my character demands more of an angry and stubborn personality but in reality, I am a person who is full of happiness.”
