Kazakhstan director shoots Borat sequel

A film director in Kazakhstan has shot a sequel to Sacha Baron Cohen's famous comedy Borat in a bid to improve the country's image.

When it was released in 2006, the original film, which follows an uncultured journalist who travels to the US where he pursues the actress Pamela Anderson, outraged people in Kazakhstan and was eventually banned in the country.

The Kazakh government also threatened Baron Cohen with legal action.
