Dogra, who was last seen in director Bejoy Nambiar's "David", is playing a strong role in the movie which is directed by debutant Rocky Khanna.
"She is a strong person and this is because she has learned the hard way on why she must protect herself," Monica said in a statement.
The actress agreed to the role because she was getting a chance to share screen with Naseeruddin and Vivaan together.
Monica is currently being put through the paces in plyometrics - an exercise that increases both speed and power - by her personal trainer Ryan Pereira.
