New Delhi: Actress Monica Dogra will soon be seen sharing screen space with seasoned actor Naseeruddin Shah and his son Vivaan in upcoming movie `Mastaan`.

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.
