The Kkusum actress will play Satrupa, the queen of seven colours, in producer Ekta Kapoor's show Dayaan.
"The sabbatical from fiction wasn't planned but yes, I wanted to walk down a path I haven't already," Aashka said in a statement.
"With Satrupa, I am getting the opportunity to play seven characters in one. She's the queen of colours and with each colour, comes a different personality yet they are all intertwined to become one.
"Rarely does one get an opportunity as an actor to experiment with so many shades in one hence, Satrupa became mine."
The Naagin actress had participated in the dance-based show Nach Baliye in 2017.
