While Sanjay will be seen playing the role of an antagonist, Raveena will be seen in an important and powerful role.
Chapter 1 was just an introduction to Rocky, his personality, his world and how he fights his enemies. Yash had revealed that in Chapter 2, the audience will get to see different shades of Rocky that they haven't seen before.
