LOS ANGELES: A sequel to the comedy “Borat” has been purchased by Amazon Prime and is expected to hit the streaming platform before November’s US election, a source familiar with the deal told AFP Tuesday.

The movie will see British comedian and actor Sacha Baron Cohen reprise his cult favorite role as a bumbling and politically incorrect reporter from Kazakhstan, after nearly 15 years.

The 2006 original, “Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan,” grossed more than $260 million, winning over critics and spawning endless catchphrases among devoted fans. It even earned an Oscar screenplay nomination.

According to Deadline, the follow-up movie was shot covertly with minimal crew as soon as coronavirus restrictions eased this summer in the US and overseas.
