"In our efforts to hit this sweet spot, we study the story, characters and work on the local script and dialogues with writers and talent in India. For 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2', we realised that Baby Groot was such a treat to watch in his original avatar (voiced by Vin Diesel); that in a first -- we decided to retain the original version across all languages in India.
