The 36-year-old actress, last seen on TV in a cameo in Kumkum along with Hiten, took a five-year-long break after having twins, son Neevan and daughter Katya in 2009.
"Everyone is expecting me and Hiten to work together. Till now we have not been offered anything. But I think we will soon work together. Now, that I am back on TV and people are going to see me and I think we will be getting offers soon," Gauri told PTI.
In Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi, Gauri will be seen playing mother to a teenager.

"All I wanted was an important role. I have enjoyed my share of fame, money, adulation for 10 years. Now, I am more concerned about the quality of work. And kids who work in TV shows now-a-days are only 15 or 16. So, it is alright to play their parent," she said.
The show to be aired on Colors, has been produced by Ekta Kapoor. Gauri has previously worked with Ekta in several shows.
"I had decided not to work till my kids turned four. I have been getting offers from other production houses. But not Ekta. When I got this offer, I felt at ease because of the familiarity with the production house and also the easy work timings," she said.
