After being shown the door in Star One's travel reality show Jet Set Go, the lady has bagged the lead role in Fireworks' soon to be aired show on Sony tentatively titled, Akela.
"Aashka is a fine actor and in a way, we gave her, her first break with Sony's Achanak - 37 saal baad and after that she was signed on in Kkusum (in which she played Kumud). She'll play Sudhanshu Pandey's love interest in Akela," says supervising producer Yash Patnaik.
Akela which will be on air in June is an one hour weekly that will be telecast at primetime. It will be directed by B P Singh himself.
The Fireworks team will start shooting for the show from today. The cast includes veterans like Pankaj Dheer and actors like Sumeet Raghavan and Sudhanshu Pandey.
The show is not an out and out thriller, but it has some supernatural elements in it. The makers promise that the show's one of its kind and is sure to keep the audience glued to their television sets
