Baron Cohen Challenged To Dual
Funnyman SACHA BARON COHEN has been challenged to a dual by an infuriated Kazakh entertainer. The British comic has outraged JANTEMIR BAIMUKHAMEDOV by his depiction of his homeland in new movie BORAT: CULTURAL LEARNINGS OF AMERICA FOR MAKE BENEFIT GLORIOUS NATION OF KAZAKHSTAN. In it, Cohen plays spoof Kazakh TV presenter BORAT SAGDIYEV, who portrays the central Asian nation as a country of superstition, incest, political suppression and religious intolerance. But Kazakh star Baimukhamedov is furious his fictional compatriot is stealing the limelight, and has vowed to fight back. He says, "I want to challenge him to a battle and win."
