Borat's On-Screen Daughter Unveiled As 24-Year-Old Bulgarian Actor Maria Bakalova
*SPOILERS LIE AHEAD*
The actor who plays Borat's teenage daughter Tutar in Sacha Baron Cohen's new film is 24-year-old Maria Bakalova.
She was born in Bulgaria in 1996 and studied at the Bulgarian National School of Arts.
In one scene in the new Borat film, she poses as a Russian reporter who asks Rudy Giuliani to a hotel room for a drink.
Giuliani, 76, is Donald Trump's attorney, and in the scene he accompanies her to a hotel room rigged with secret cameras, where he can be seen putting a microphone on.
Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City, is filmed laying back on the bed, messing with his untucked shirt and fiddling with his trousers, as Bakalova takes off her mic.
They are interrupted by Borat who storms into the room, declaring that the 15-year-old is 'too old' for Giuliani.
But Trump's attorney didn't take the compromsing clip well, dismissing it on Twitter as a 'complete fabrication'.
(1) The Borat video is a complete fabrication. I was tucking in my shirt after taking off the recording equipment.- Rudy W. Giuliani (@RudyGiuliani) October 21, 2020
At no time before, during, or after the interview was I ever inappropriate. If Sacha Baron Cohen implies otherwise he is a stone-cold liar.
(2) In fact, the NY Post today reports "it looks to me like an exaggeration through editing."- Rudy W. Giuliani (@RudyGiuliani) October 21, 2020
As soon as I realized it was a set up I called the police, which has been noted in THR article on July 8th.
(3) This is an effort to blunt my relentless exposure of the criminality and depravity of Joe Biden and his entire family.- Rudy W. Giuliani (@RudyGiuliani) October 21, 2020
Deadline Hollywood reports CAA had a distribution screening in September where there was no mention of the scene holding any importance.
Speaking to WABC radio, he said: "It's not an accident that it happens that I turn in all this evidence on their prince and darling Joe Biden who's one of the biggest crook in the last thirty years, and since I have the courage to say that I'm the target.
"I'm a devil in Hollywood. Nothing about me comes out in that period of time, nothing sensational about me in the movie.
"Now all of a sudden there's all this sensational stuff about me in the movie. Don't know if it was added, doctored, manipulated, whatever."
Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm is out today through Amazon Studios.
