In a rare interview with Sacha Baron Cohen, yes Sacha, not one of his alter egos, the comedian revealed that he will be forever saying farewell to Borat, one of his most celebrated characters. He spilled the beans to the British News Paper “The Telegraph” earlier this week.
According to Cohen, Borat, the star of 2006′s “Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan” is too well known by the public, and it is impossible for Cohen to successfully trick anyone in costume.
Being that the bases of the comedy behind Borat and the Borat phenomenon was founded on the reactions of others, and because people are finding it easier to spot out the con, there have been very few chuckles coming out of it.
Even though Cohen announced that there would be a Borat sequel to follow the original, the actor now says that it is highly unlikely.
