Sacha Baron Cohen says he won't return as Borat

Actor Sacha Baron Cohen has said that he will not be returning to play his fan-favourite role of Borat in future movies.
      
Cohen first portrayed Borat Sagdiyev, a gangly journalist working for Kazakhstan's state-run TV network, in the 2006 film Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.

He recently came out with its sequel, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, which was released on Amazon Prime Video ahead of the US presidential election in November.

During an interview with Variety, Cohen said he made Borat 2 because he "felt democracy was in peril" due to Donald Trump's presidency. "I felt people's lives were in peril and I felt compelled to finish the movie. It was originally about the danger of Trump and Trumpism. What coronavirus demonstrated was that there's a lethal effect to his spreading of lies and conspiracy theories. I don't want to egotistically imply that people would watch Borat and not vote for Trump, but that was the aim," Cohen said.
