Sacha Baron Cohen May Have Already Secretly Filmed Borat 2: Report
Borat premiered in 2006 and grossed over $265 million worldwide
Is Borat 2 all ready to go?
Borat, with the full title including Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, followed as the titular character, a reporter from Kazakhstan, went on a mission to meet Pamela Anderson. The movie produced several iconic lines, including Borat's memorable pronunciation of the phrase "my wife."
The comedy went on to gross over $265 million worldwide, giving Cohen, 48, the platform to create future characters and movies like Bruno, The Dictator and Grimsby.
In 2007, Cohen, 48, said he'd be retiring the Borat character.
“When I was being Ali G and Borat I was in character sometimes 14 hours a day and I came to love them, so admitting I am never going to play them again is quite a sad thing,” he told U.K.'s The Daily Telegraph.
“It is like saying goodbye to a loved one. It is hard, and the problem with success, although it’s fantastic, is that every new person who sees the Borat movie is one less person I 'get' with Borat again, so it’s a kind of self-defeating form, really.”
Cohen reprised the character briefly before the 2016 election to warn Americans about voting for Donald Trump.
Borat appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where he first taught host Jimmy Kimmel a surprising translation of the late night host’s name, then claimed Trump is one of Cohen’s more "unbelievable" characters.
“He is clearly a parody of rich, American racist!” Cohen as Borat said.
