London, October 10 (ANI): British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen shot down a fans request to sing at Kazakhstans World Cup qualifying football match against England.

The British comedian and writer, who is known for creating witty characters such as Ali G, Borat and Bruno, was asked in a Facebook petition to sing the countrys anthem at the Wembley stadium.

The Golden Globe-winning actor has, however, decided to ignore the petition bearing 10,500 signatures, reports the Sun.

The 36-year-old had sung the Kazakhstans national anthem in the 2006 mockumentary film Borat in which he led as a protagonist with the same title who travels through the US, recording real-life interactions with Americans.

The satire was banned by all Arab countries, except Lebanon, and Kazakh officials even threatened to sue the actor for mocking the country in the film. (ANI)
