Although details of the plot are vague at the moment, it's thought that the new film sees Kazakh TV journalist Borat Sagdiyev no longer unknown outside of his home country. He now considers himself to be a big star and decides to go "undercover" to interview people. Sacha has been spotted on social media filming in costume although it is unknown if Larry Charles and Jay Roach, who directed and produced the original movie respectively, are involved in this effort.

Since finding success, Cohen has had to go to more "extreme" lengths not to be recognised when making his mockumentary comedy films and TV shows.
